Treatment of Scars, or Scar Revision

New surgical procedures, skin resurfacing technologies, and other treatments are making it possible for scars and scar tissue to be successfully minimized, greatly improving the skin's appearance.


Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Even a wound that heals well can result in a scar that affects your appearance. Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location.

Your treatment options may vary based on the type and degree of scarring and can include:

  • Simple topical treatments
  • Minimally invasive procedures
  • Surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure

Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture.

Dr. Outlaw and his staff will work with you to determine the best treatment for your individual situation. Our goal is to give you the best possible treatment for the best possible results!
