Scar Reduction

Whenever the skin is sufficiently damaged, a scar results.  Many times the skin heals beautifully with a nearly invisible scar.  Unfortunately, other times the scar can be more cosmetically apparent than we would like.   These scars can be prominent reminders of our past and are a common reason for patients to seek treatment.  While we may not be able to completely erase a scar, the experts at South End Dermatology & Skin Care can help to soften and minimize the scar.  Our physicians are not only Board-certified Dermatologists, but they have also completed additional training in dermatologic surgery and cosmetic rejuvenation, with a special focus on facial surgery.   

Many times, the initial scar tissue may be red and angry looking.  Our physicians are experts at using laser technologies to help reduce this redness.  Other times, the scars may be raised and bumpy; our experts use small injections of medications to help reduce this swelling.  Scars can also be depressed or atrophic compared to the surrounding skin; our physicians can use lasers to help even the skin texture.  Finally, as a last resort, our physicians are specially trained in dermatologic surgery, and can surgically revise the scar to improve its appearance.  In short, our physicians have great expertise in helping to soften and minimize your unwanted scar.

If you would like to learn more about how the physicians at South End Dermatology & Skin Care can help to improve the appearance of your unwanted scar, make an appointment with our experts today by calling us at (857) 362 7330.
