Scar Repair & Revision

Scars can happen, But.. University Dermatology has you covered!

Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Even a wound that heals well can result in a scar that affects your appearance. Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location.

Scars are a natural part of the skin’s healing process, and most small scars fade over time to become nearly invisible.  The larger and more severe the skin damage and the longer it takes to heal, however, the more prominent the scar will be. If the appearance of a scar bothers you, a visit to University Dermatology may be in order.

University Dermatology offers many cosmetic treatment options that can  reduce the appearance of scars.  Although some scars cannot be eliminated entirely, modern cosmetic techniques can significantly minimize their visibility for an improved appearance.
