Discoloration, surface irregularities and other more subtle scars can be cosmetically improved by surgery or other treatments recommended by your plastic surgeon. Scar revision is usually done 6-12 months after scar formation. During the procedure the old scar is removed or the texture and color of the s car is improved by using different techniques. Fat grafting can be used to fill deeper scars. Your surgeon might prescribe special creams or injections to improve scar reformation after scar repair.
Superficial scars can be treated with chemical peels and mechanical abrasion, skin heals within a week. Reddening of the skin might occur for a longer period of time, makeup foundation can be used to cover this. The end result after chemical peel and abrasion is very natural, it doesn't damage the skin, burn or make the skin thinner. Treatment is very effective and economical.
Superficial scars can also be treated without sick leave by using gentle laser-radiofrequency. Laser treatment also reduces redness of the scars. This particular laser treatment does not burn the skin or cause discoloration of the skin. Discoloration and pigmentation problems are common problem with lasers that cause the skin burns such as fraxel- and other carbondioxide or erbiumlaser treatments.
