Atrophic Scars Treatment
Atrophic scars can result from any injury that damages the skin, including chickenpox, burns and various types of surgery. If you are struggling with the appearance of atrophic scars and seeking effective treatment options, the International Keloid & Scar Treatment Center offers individualized options for removal. Dr. Kenrick Spence and his team can even provide a virtual consultation that will allow you to discuss your needs with one of Orlando’s most decorated plastic surgeons.
Treatment options for Atrophic Scars include:
- Chemical peels – are commonly used as a treatment option for atrophic scars. The idea is to destroy the damaged area of skin and force the natural healing mechanism to form a fresh layer of skin. Recovery time after treatment using chemical peels varies from patient to patient and may take a number of weeks. Another treatment option involves the use of fillers. This treatment works to effectively raise the indented scar tissue to match surrounding tissue volume and appearance.
- Microneeding – is a therapy that involves puncturing the skin to help the regeneration process. Hundreds of tiny punctures promote the production of collagen that adds natural volume to the skin over time. Alternatively, punch excision treatments may work for eliminating atrophic scars for some patients. Scar tissue is removed, and the resulting wound is closed. Also fat grafting to affected areas may be another option for many. For more complex atrophic scars, a graft using skin taken from the back of the ear may be necessary.
- Dermal fillers
- Fat grafting
- Laser Resurfacing
Although there are a number of potential treatments for the removal of atrophic scars that may benefit you, atrophic scars can present major complications that may require a surgical approach to treatment. This is why it is so important to have an in office or virtual consultation to determine the most effective treatment for you.
