Scar Repair And Revision

Scar repair and revision is an easy and quick way to improve an unsightly scar. Scar quality can vary depending on the injury and the type of healer you are but in most cases, scar quality can be greatly improved with a simple procedure.  A traditional scar revision procedure requires Dr. Spiegel to cut away the old scar and create a cleaner, less noticeable new scar.  The procedure can typically be performed right in our office with a local anesthesia although bigger scars may require anesthesia.  Once this new incision heals the new scar will fade away beautifully over time.   There is little recovery except for keeping the area clean and protected from the sun following the procedure.
