Scar Revisions Q & A

While not all scars can be completely removed, Dr. Obasi strives to make your scars as invisible as possible. Depending on the severity and location, he uses one or more surgical and non-surgical techniques to address the size, shape, color, depth, and location of the scar. He aims to reduce the scar’s noticeability while avoiding further damage to the surrounding skin or the scar itself.

Several different procedures are used to treat scars. You’ll start with a comprehensive skincare consultation to determine your needs and discuss your goals and how realistic they are given your particular situation. Dr. Obasi always begins with the least invasive option to treat your scars, progressing to surgical methods when necessary. He may use one or several of the following techniques:

  • Topical medications: Medicated ointments and bleaching creams reduce pigmentation
  • CO2 laser resurfacing: Refines superficial scars and pigmentation irregularities
  • Injectable medications: Special formulas reduce collagen production locally
  • Injectable dermal fillers: These products temporarily fill indentations (e.g. acne scars)
  • Surgical incision: Leaves only a discrete line that eventually disappears
  • Skin grafting: Skin from another area of the body replaces dermal tissues

Following your procedure, you may notice swelling, discomfort, or discoloration for up to two weeks. The scar or scars will continue to heal and fade in the weeks that follow. The purpose of scar revision surgery is to reduce the appearance of scars, but you might need multiple treatments or a combination of approaches over time to achieve results. Having realistic expectations is vital if you’re considering scar revision treatment. After a scar revision procedure, following Dr. Obasi’s aftercare instructions is extremely important. Good skincare habits keep your scars from worsening and prevent new scars from forming.
