Facial scars can be a source of insecurity for those who yearn for younger-looking skin. A scarred face can negatively impact our self-confidence — just talk to anyone affected by acne scars and you’ll realize this. But can you successfully and safely treat scars? The answer is yes.

Treatment for Facial Scars

Treatment for scars can take the form of several different procedures depending on the age of the patient, the location of the scar, and the nature of the injury. If the scar is superficial, it can be treated with microdermabrasion or a medium chemical peel, while a deeper scar will require more intensive treatments such as laser resurfacing or a deep chemical peel. It is important to note that different people have different tendencies in the formation of scar tissue. Some of us form deeper scars, or scar more easily, compared to others from a similar injury.

Scar Treatment Variables

Many methods for resurfacing the skin are available to treat scarring,  and all produce different results. Aspects of the treatments such as cost, post-operative time of recovery, and comfort level can all vary. Therefore, talking the procedure over with your doctor to discuss your problem areas and particular goals is essential before treatment. Don’t think you have to live the rest of your life with upsetting facial scars, consult your doctor and get treated.
