When the skin is injured, it can repair itself. However, damaged skin cells are replaced with scar tissue, which can look and feel different than the surrounding skin. Some scars can cause deformities, especially if they are on the face or another visible area. If you have an unattractive scar, treatment is available to improve the appearance of the skin. Eden Plastic Surgery Institute offers scar removal and revision surgery at our medical clinic in Miami.
Even a small injury to the skin can cause an unsightly scar. Acne scars are common, leaving dark spots or even pock marks on the skin. An ear piercing can result in a large keloid scar that deforms the ear. Whether you have a scar left over after surgery or raised, dark scars from an injury, there are treatments to remove the scar tissue and reduce deformities. Eden Plastic Surgery Institute offers laser treatments, therapies and scar revision surgery to alter noticeable scars for a more attractive skin appearance.
