Say Goodbye to Unsightly Scars
Scar revision treatments helpful in reducing scarring caused by previous surgeries, traumas or burns
“When there is significant damage to the skin, the body forms new collagen fibres to heal the wound which results in the formation of scars,” explains Dr. Trelles, plastic and laser surgeon at state-of-the-art dentistry, plastic and aesthetic laser surgery clinic Vilafortuny. “The damage to the skin may be a result of accidents, prior surgeries, skin conditions or burns the patient might have experienced in the past.”
When scars are formed, they are usually flat and pale, but when the body produces more collagen than needed to heal the wound, raised scars are formed. There are two types of raised scars: keloids and hypertrophic scars.
