Scar Revision

Scar revision surgery can help improve and reduce the appearance of scars caused by injury, burn or previous surgery. It can also minimize scar discomfort, pain and itching. From surface scars to the most complex, our surgeons use the most advanced techniques to achieve the best possible results for you. We also use a variety of nonsurgical techniques, including creams, injections and laser treatments, to blend scars with surrounding skin.
