Why do scars occur?
Facial scars are the result of a natural body response to trauma. People vary in the level of inflammation that is activated by the body.
While some people rarely or minimally scar, others have a more severe inflammatory response, and are much more likely to be left with an unsightly facial scar after the face has suffered some type of trauma.
We will evaluate your condition and advise you about what we can do to minimize the appearance of your facial scars. It may be possible to perform several types of treatments to reduce the visible appearance of scars.
Some of the issues that will affect a person's ability to reduce the appearance of scars include the following:
- Skin type
- Skin color
- Individual ability to heal
