Do You Have Unwanted Scars?

You might have a really great “war story” about how you got a specific scar, but most of us prefer to erase rather than glory in our scars. Perhaps you suffered a burn or endured lacerations in an accident; maybe acne has left your face pitted or pregnancy’s parting gift was stretch marks. Instead of living with scarring or doing your best to camouflage it, Contour Dermatology has well over a dozen treatments that can help you improve the appearance of a scar. Of course the solution that’ll work best for you depends on your particular type of scarring and its severity. Even details like your age, heredity, sex and ethnicity factor in.

The scarring that results from bad bouts of acne causes people great distress. The good news is we have many options that can help acne scarring. Treatments like vibradermabrasion to effectively “sand down” acne scars, injection of fillers like Restylane or Juvéderm to plump up depressed scars, chemical peels can improve your overall skin texture and there are a wide range of laser resurfacing treatments that can perform “magic.”

A procedure known as microneedling which our estheticians perform with the dermaroller can help smooth out scar tissue on raised scars and is safe for darker skin types. The dermaroller also helps with stretchmarks. Steroid injections also work well to reduce inflammation in raised scars.

Believe it or not, Latisse – yes, the same product that helps you’re eyelashes grow longer and thicker and darker, has been shown to be effective at on improving the appearance of white scars which are among the most difficult scars to treat.

Another type of scar, keloid scars have been known to result when the body’s natural healing process goes into overdrive. In addition to being itchy and painful, these irregularly shaped, hard and rubbery textured scars can grow quite large and unsightly. Rather than live with these nuisances, you can turn to lasers such as Vbeam and Excel V to help reduce redness. Cryotherapy is often used on smaller keloid scars– it’s a freezing therapy using liquid nitrogen. For larger keloids, surgical excision is always an option.

At Contour Dermatology, we take scars seriously and consider each circumstance carefully before recommending a course of action. Each scar is a challenge and our goal is to not only try to make a scar look better, it’s to make it so no one can ever tell you had one to begin with.
