Scars are normal, but you do not have to live with a scar that is too obvious. Dr. Keith Llewellyn offers scar removal/revision for residents of Santa Barbara, Ventura, Santa Maria, Santa Ynez, Solvang, and the surrounding areas of California.
What is Scar Removal/Revision?
Scar removal/revision is a treatment that may improve the appearance of a scar. While no scar can be completely removed, Dr. Llewellyn specializes in procedures that may reduce the size and improve the appearance of scars. Scars form when the skin is injured in some way, such as a truama, surgery or an inflammatory acne lesion. Sometimes, depending on the nature of the trauma, the location of the trauma and genetic factors that influence your body’s healing response to that trauma, a scar may become thickened, raised, red or spread. By treating the scar with lasers and other techniques, Dr. Llewellyn can often improve the appearance of a scar and make it more difficult to distinguish the scar from the surrounding skin.
How Much Does Scar Removal/Revision Cost?
Several factors are considered as part of the scar removal/revision treatment plan, such as the location of the scar, specific characteristics, and the type of scar. We base the cost of scar revision/removal on your personal plan of treatment, and we can provide these details at the time of your consultation. Aloe Dermatology accepts cash and major credit cards as payment, and we have more information on our financing page.
What Are the Benefits of Scar Removal/Revision?
There are obvious cosmetic benefits to treating scars. Scar removal/revision can help blend scars with the surrounding skin and may allow you to feel less self-conscious about the scar. Some hypertrophic and keloid scars are uncomfortable and patients may experience itching or burning sensations in their scars. These symptoms often improve with treatment. We can treat a variety of scars including acne scars, traumatic scars, surgical scars, hypertrophic scars and keloids.
Am I a Candidate for Scar Removal/Revision?
If you have a scar on your face or body that you dislike or that is causing you discomfort, you may be a good candidate for scar revision/removal.
What is Acne Scar Removal?
For many people, acne is a temporary skin concern that goes away, leaving behind no signs of the problem. For others, though, their acne may leave behind scars that are constant reminders of the embarrassing condition and affect their self esteem. Dr. Llewellyn specializes in acne scar treatments that can make these scars less perceptible.
What Should I Expect from Scar Removal/Revision?
Scars can not be removed, therefore, your scar will not completely disappear. With treatment, a scar can become be less obvious to you and others. You may need a series of treatments to achieve the best results from scar revision/removal.
