Facial Scar Revision
Reduce scar visibility and improve skin appearance
Injuries can affect everyone and can sometimes leave undesirable scars that last for long lengths of time. Scars can also arrive from disease or a previous surgery. The scar can affect your self-consciousness or even remind you of unpleasant memories.
Dr. Lesavoy offers facial scar revision in Beverly Hills to reduce the visibility of scars. He is trained in evaluating skin and the severity of the scar to prepare the best treatment plan for you.
Each scar is different and can originate from various causes, including surgery or acne. Our treatment plan is tailored to the unique features of your scar, including its condition, age, and severity. Different scar types can include discoloration, post-surgical incisions, acne scars, hypertrophic scars, keloids, and contracture.
There are a number of treatments available for scar revision. After an evaluation of your skin and scar, the following approaches may be recommended:
Topical treatment with gels and other medicine
Dermabrasion or scar sanding
Revision with surgery
Scar revision is aimed towards reducing the visibility of the scar. This includes improving its color so it matches with the surrounding skin. While skin appearance can experience improvements with treatment, you must have realistic expectations about the procedure. Scars cannot be completely erased, but they can be treated until they become barely visible.
