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:
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
