SCARS AND KELOIDS
Scars and keloids occur after an insult to the skin, be it surgery, trauma, or pre-existing skin disease such as acne. Acne scarring may be ice pick (small, deep pits), boxcar (larger, shallow pits), or rolling. Based on the scar pattern, an ideal treatment is tailored to the patient.
We offer a number of minimally invasive scar treatments including injections of steroids, 5 F/U, sculptra and other fillers, fat, ablative and nonablative fractional laser therapy (Fraxel®, Clear + Brilliant®) and surgical removal, as indicated.
Acne scars and stretch marks respond well to a combination of vascular and resurfacing laser and microneedling with and without radiofrequency.
Scars treatments vary with multiple treatments spaced over months.
