Anytime the skin is damaged, scar cells can form. On the face, scars can create noticeable flaws that impact the overall appearance. While small scars from acne or scratches can fade or treated with laser therapy, larger scars from lacerations, burns or surgery may require more intensive treatment. If you have facial scars that are distracting or making you feel less confident in your appearance, contact City Facial Plastics to learn more about scar revision plastic surgery.
Scars on the face resulting from an injury, trauma, burns and/or cancer removal can make some people feel self-conscious. Though some scars may not be removed completely, it is possible to minimize, camouflage or hide them. Some facial scars are cosmetic only, while others may interfere with facial expressions and other facial movements. Different types of scars respond to different cosmetic surgery techniques, so the timing of your treatment is important. Because each patient is unique, maximum improvement in facial scars may require more than one procedure, and more than one technique may be used.
Treatments for Scar Revision
Some scars are best treated with cosmetic procedures that promote skin healing and rejuvenation. Options like laser therapy, skin resurfacing, and chemical peels can be helpful in fading scars on the face. For more prominent scars, surgery may be required. Removal of keloids or other large scar tissue formations can be carefully performed by Dr. Gary Linkov at our clinic. While no scar can be completely erased, it is possible to make them less noticeable and improve the overall appearance of the face.
If you have facial scars you want minimized, contact City Facial Plastics to schedule a skin consultation with Dr. Linkov. Our office is located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan. Call today to make your appointment.
