Scar Removal Treatment
Any wound to the skin can leave behind a scar, whether it is a small pimple or a surgical incision. Scar tissue has a high content of collagen and is effective at repairing the skin, but it does look different than the original skin. While scar tissue cannot be completely prevented or removed, there are cosmetic options to revise scars and remove some of the noticeable traits. Dr. Aviva Preminger is one of the top NYC plastic surgeons who offers scar removal treatment at her clinic in Manhattan.
Scars come in many sizes, shapes and forms. From pitted atrophic acne scars to raised hypertrophic scars, there are effective options for removing all types of scars. Laser treatments, dermabrasion and surgical revision can be used to improve the skin appearance and minimize scar tissue. The scar removal treatment used depends on many factors, from the type of scar tissue to the patient’s skin type.
Dr. Preminger is a board certified and Ivy League-trained plastic surgeon who uses cutting-edge techniques and medical technology at her practice in NYC. For patients with disfiguring scars, she can recommend options for scar revision, from non-invasive laser treatments to fade dark scar tissue to surgical revision methods for large scars. A combination of techniques can be used to create the desired result, improving the skin’s appearance and the self-confidence of the patient.
