For a variety of reasons, people acquire facial scars over time. These scars not only have a physical effect on someone’s appearance, but they can also have a lasting psychological effect that can destroy a person’s self image. With the advancement of medical science in general and cosmetic surgery specifically, those suffering from facial scars can now look forward to a day that leaves them behind for good. Below you’ll find information regarding how facial scar revision works, the types of facial scars that can be minimized or eliminated altogether and finally how you should proceed if you’d like to learn more about the benefits of this approach from a facial scar revision specialist in La Jolla.

About Facial Scar Revision in General

Facial scar revision involves more techniques than surgery, and many patients will undergo a variety of steps in order to obtain the full benefit that this technique can provide. Facial scars come in all shapes and sizes and were brought about by different forces and events, and the fact of the matter is that there is no one approach that works for every situation. Facial scar revision can include scraping of the skin, surgical techniques meant to eliminate and remove the problematic skin tissue, injectable fillers designed to provide a new look and shape to the previously scarred area and chemical peels and topical gels that are often used after the initial step is taken towards revising facial scars. In short, facial scar revision is a process that usually involves an individual plan of attack for each patient depending on the situation and the desired results.

Types of Facial
Scars That Can Be Revised

There are many different types of scars, and below are just a few examples of the types of facial scarring that can be attacked with a facial scar revision strategy:

  • Discoloration – Discoloration of the facial skin can occur for many reasons, including natural aging, exposure to the sun for long periods of time or even the long-term effects of skin conditions such as acne.
  • Hypertrophic scars – Hypertrophic scars are those that appear for long periods of time if not permanently after some sort of wound has been inflicted on that area. These wounds can come from many sources, but facial scar revision can help to minimize their visual effects.
  • Contractures – Contractures are areas of the skin that tighten naturally for many reasons, and one common example occurs after an area of the skin has been burned. This process does not allow for a free-moving body of skin and can be not only displeasing to the eye but uncomfortable and even painful.
