Types of Scars and Treatments Provided by Boulder Plastic Surgery
There are different treatment options you can look into depending on what kind of scaring you have. Whether you have minimal scarring caused by acne, or major scarring from a previous surgical procedure or injury, Boulder Plastic Surgery can tailor a treatment plan to remove and minimize the appearance of your scars.
- Acne scars – Red marks on the skin caused by acne are probably the most common scars that people experience. The Pulse Dye Laser treatment is an effective treatment for reducing the red, raised scars caused by acne, which shrinks down the red blood vessels surrounding the scar as well as the oil glands causing the acne. The dark color of the scar is reduced along with reducing the frequency of acne production. Four treatments are needed for full results to be seen.
- Pitted/uneven scars – Uneven pits or bumps on the skin caused by acne scarring or minor injuries can be successfully treated with microdermabrasion or laser resurfacing. These spa treatments remove the outer layer of the skin to promote faster cell turnover, so newer, healthy skin cells rise to the surface for a smoother, brighter appearance.
- Nevi, Lipomas, & Skin Lesions / Melanoma – Boulder Plastic Surgery specializes in the surgical removal of scars caused by previous surgeries, as well as the removal of skin imperfections, infections, and cancer. Scars are surgically removed and treated with the Pulse Dye Laser so the area heals with less redness or raised skin. The wound is closed in a careful manner so there are no jagged or uneven lines.
