Surgical & Wound Scars
Surgical and traumatic wound scars are often a nuisance, especially those that are raised and/or a different color from their surrounding skin.
Scars are the result of wounds that are sustained in your skin and tissue. When a wound heals, it can leave a scar or mark in its place. Scarring due to acne is a common cause. Other causes of scars include:
- Automobile and other accidents
- Severe rashes
- Allergic reactions
- Invasive surgery
Depending on their cause and location, scars come in all shapes and sizes. Some fade in time thanks to our bodies’ natural healing process. Others can be treated with over-the-counter remedies such as Vitamin E oil. Those that linger, however, might need the professional skills of a board-certified dermatologist, such as a member of our team at Georgia Skin Cancer & Aesthetic Dermatology.
Treatment options for surgical and wound scars include:
- Surgical revisions
- Injectable solutions
- Laser resurfacing
