Scars on the skin are collagen-dense tissue that are designed to repair wounds. The scar tissue differs from the original skin, usually different in both color and texture. Over time, most scars fade, but some can be very noticeable. When scars are raised or indented, they can change the appearance of the skin. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center, we offer scar removal and revision options to minimize the appearance of scars at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
It is almost impossible to completely remove any scar. While darker or indented scars can be faded or smoothed with laser treatments, raised or stiff scars may need surgical revision, which can create more scar tissue. Noticeable scars can be minimized or moved using advanced surgical and laser techniques, but there will be scar tissue left behind. The goal is to improve the appearance of the scar and the overall aesthetics of the skin.
Dr. Peter Koltz is a highly respected, board certified plastic surgeon with years of experience in cosmetic and reconstruction surgeries. His expertise is valuable when it comes to preventing noticeable scars after plastic surgery, and for scar removal and revision from previous skin injuries.
