After suffering a traumatic injury, the body’s natural healing process will cause it to develop a scar at the site of the wound. Scars vary in shape and size and can either be raised or depressed. Depending on the location, it can be difficult to keep them hidden.
Scars can be a major source of insecurity for people who have them and have a hard time keeping them hidden. However, there are plenty of scar-revision methods available to people who want to soften the appearance of their scars.
Minor scars can be treated with topical silicone products. With regular application of these products, the scar can even flatten out over time. Hypertrophic scars can be improved with injections of a medication called Kenalog or by using serial laser treatments. Scars can even be removed or redirected if your surgeon expects them to heal better a second time.
Whether you’re suffering from a minor scar or something more severe, scar revision can help you improve its look and make you feel better about your appearance.
