Any injury of skin leads to scar. Scar Revision surgery is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that can make a scar become less noticeable.
However, the severity of a scar depends on many variables. A scar may develop an undesired appearance as a result of the hampered or excessive blood supply to the area as it heals. Additionally, the way a wound is sutured initially as well as the way it heals, contribute to the appearance of a scar.
Use of fractional CO2 laser can further improve the appearance of the scar. Keloid or hypertrophic scars sometimes need steroid injections into the scar. Certain silicone based gels & ointments also sometimes help in reducing thickness of scar.
