You can get away with scars that you can hide, but visible scars damage your good looks and self-confidence. A scar caused by a surgical procedure may be deeper and severer than the ones being treated with different home remedies and products from local drugstores. Consult your doctor first, before going for a surgical scar removal treatment to ensure that no potential risk of complication is associated with it.
Your doctor may recommend medications like retinoid creams that stimulate stem cells so that new skin cells are produced fast. You will be asked to include more vitamins and proteins in your diet which can promote the production of collagen and new skin cells. Steroid Injection or the ones with collagen fillers are also used to treat surgical scars.
Invasive treatment of skin grafting can also be used to remove the appearance of a surgical scar. In this process, skin cells are collected as grafts from the patient’s body area which is not very visible to remove the appearance of scar from the area where it is more visible.
Chemical peels can also be helpful in reducing the appearance of surgical scars. A chemical solution is applied to your skin which exfoliates the dead and damaged skin cells. Multiple sessions of chemical peels will be required to produce significant results.
Microdermabrasion is also commonly used for surgical scar removal. It removes the upper layer of skin that has the scar appearance without damaging the healthy skin. The fresh layer of skin cells thus formed is smooth and even. The depth of Dermabrasion depends on the severity and depth of the scar. It may also require multiple treatments to get the desired results.
Laser treatment is one of the most popular treatments for removing surgical scars effectively. Laser skin rejuvenation is used to treat multiple skin conditions. It helps in removing the scar irrespective of its type and reason to appear.
Laser experts have found an advanced technique in laser technology for skin resurfacing which produces much better results with a faster healing process. Fractional carbon dioxide lasers are being used for surgical scar removal.
The process is very short and simple. Your doctor will use a handheld device that delivers fractional CO2 laser to the skin in a fractionated way that columns of skin are left undamaged. The outermost layer of the skin is removed. Laser beams promote the production of new collagen which triggers the healing process. However, to achieve the best possible results, you may be asked to undergo a few sessions.
If you have a visible surgical scar then laser treatment is an effective way to get rid of them. It provides permanent results and is virtually pain-free.
