Scar Treatments

Common types of scar treatments performed by Robert Strimling, MD at Strimling Dermatology, Laser & Vein Institute include:

  • Acne Scars
  • Hypertrophic or keloid scars (enlarged, thick, raised scars that are often itchy or painful)

Keloid Scar Removal

Elevated (Hypertrophic or Keloid) Scars are often treated with intralesional corticosteroids, but some types or locations of hypertrophic or keloid scars are better treated by surgery/excision. 

Other unsatisfactory scars

Whether from prior injuries, trauma or surgery, scarring may be undesirable in a variety of ways requiring different treatments depending upon the features of the scarring.

Many scars will improve with time using a topical silicone-based topical agent.

Spread (wide, but flat) Scars

Some scars may have spread during healing and may be made thinner by revision surgery.

Depressed Scars

Some scars may be depressed and can be improved with a dermal filler and or “abrading” adjacent surrounding skin tissues to create a blending of the tissues.

Discolored Scars

Topical lightening medications may be used with varying success for hyperpigmented scars.

We also have various lasers to treat discolored scars, depending upon the color of the scar.

Assessing whether or not you are a good candidate to have your scar improved generally requires an in-person consultation.

Improvement after treatment or treatments is expected, but not guaranteed.

Alternative treatments, side effects or complications, preparation and aftercare of treatments are treatment specific or dependent.
