When a person undergoes surgery, a constant reminder in the form of a scar at the targeted area bothers him. The shape of scars varies and depends upon the surgery that a person has gone through. When the scar first appears it starts as a red lump and slowly changes into a solid and lumpy state.
People used to accept scars in the past as a price they had to pay for the treatment. But not anymore. The surgical procedure has advanced to the point where they can make the scar almost invisible. However, these techniques can not completely remove the scar.
In the present time, there are many techniques used for the treatment of different scars that a person receives during surgery. The following are the techniques used for the removal of surgical scars.
In laser scar removal, a high energy laser beam is used to remove the outer surface of the scar. The laser in this technique also penetrates the middle layer of the skin to tighten it. The treatment takes one to two hours for completion.
Two types of lasers are used for two different types of scars.
YAG laser: This type of laser is used to treat shallow and small scars. It has less penetration power. It also requires less anesthetic for pain sedation and the recovery time is faster (About 1 week).
CO2 Laser: It is a powerful laser and penetrates deeper into the skin. This type of laser is used to remove deeper and thicker scars. The procedure is painful and requires sedation. The recovery time of this method is longer (About 2 weeks).
Injectables are the fillers that are used to fill the scars. This type of technique is usually used to fill depressed or swollen scars. The lasting time of this treatment depends upon the filler used and the part of the skin where it is used.
This technique is used to stop the resurfacing of the scar and correct the scarring of the skin. If the surgical scars are not too deep then they can be treated using this method.
In this procedure gels, tapes and even external compressors are used to reduce the surface of a raised scar. This procedure is also useful in the closure of scars. These medicines are often prescribed with other scar revision techniques in order to help with the healing of the scar.
In this technique, a scar is removed surgically. The procedure involves the removal of a swollen scar in order to make it plastered with the surface. This technique is used for the removal of deepest scars that can’t be closed by using other methods. The tissues of a scar are surgically removed in this procedure and scar is closed in a more appropriate position.
The end result of your scar will depend upon the severity of your Scar. Some scars can be closed with one technique while some require the combination of different scar revision techniques for a good result.
