WHAT IS SCAR REVISION?

Do you have an old scar from falling off the monkey bars, a past surgical scar that looks like a war wound, or an unattractive scar from a C-section delivery? While scar removal isn’t possible, Lexington plastic surgeon Dr. Jared Nimtz can revise your scar to make you look and feel better about your appearance. This is a minor cosmetic procedure that can be performed in one of our two in-office surgical rooms.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SCAR REVISION?

Those who are worried about hiding their scars may find that scar revision gives them more freedom in choosing what to wear because the appearance of the scar is often markedly reduced. Want to look absolutely amazing again? You may be a good candidate for scar revision if you are bothered by one or more unusual scars, but otherwise, have healthy skin that is likely to respond well to treatment.

Several treatments may be needed to provide you with the best possible results. Each treatment should be scheduled around 4 weeks apart to give your skin plenty of time to recover. The procedure involves the use of a special handpiece to deliver laser waves into the deepest layers of your skin.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR SCAR REVISION?

If a scar is bothering you or affecting the quality of your life, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nimtz. Scar revision can refer to any one of a number of techniques that are designed to drastically reduce the appearance of scars. Laser Genesis is a very effective treatment for a variety of scars, including those caused by:

  • Acne
  • Burns
  • Injury
  • Trauma
  • Surgery

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR SCAR REVISION?

Going through scar revision can boost your self-confidence in no time. Scar revision is the process of removing old tissue and fostering the growth and development of new tissue, which leads to a sharp reduction in the appearance of scars. Laser treatments from Dr. Nimtz work well on different types of scars as well as scars of different ages. Laser scar revision is the most popular type of treatment used to deal with scars. Lasers use light waves to specifically target both lighter and darker types of scars. Unlike other treatments that treat scars from the outside in, laser treatments work from the inside out. We apply a gel to the skin or aim the laser directly at the skin without applying any gel. Short pulses of light produced by the laser penetrate deep within the skin to change the look and appearance of the scar. The laser beam dissolves old scar tissue and increases the body’s natural production of healthy cells.
