Scars can be an unsightly problem for your appearance, especially if they are in prominent areas. Though scars cannot be completely erased, there are techniques that can significant reduce their appearance. Scar revision is available for those who are interested in making their scars less noticeable.
Scarring is a natural process of the body’s healing from injury. The size, shape and type of scar depends on a variety of factors, such as the cause of the injury, how your body heals, the size of the wound, the thickness of your skin and your skin color. These factors also play into how much the scar’s appearance can be improved. Medications and skin treatments like chemical peels can dramatically reduce the scar’s appearance.
