Scars And Stretch Marks


 

What Can I Do About My Scars And Stretch Marks?

Scar tissue is different from un-touched skin, when looking with our naked eye or from under a microscope. Sometimes the cells that make the scars can be hyperactive, creating what we call hypertrophic scars or keloids. For early scars, injections can be given to halt the progress. Sometimes the tension on the scar prevents it from getting better, and surgery is needed to change the direction, allowing the skin to heal properly.


Lasers Reducing Scar Appearance

Some lasers can be utilized to help the appearance of the scar. Lasers targeting the color red can help with the appearance for early scars, and microneedling or lasers such as Fraxel can help for older scars.
