The Benefits of SCAR REVISION

Scar revision can significantly improve an individual’s quality of life by addressing both cosmetic and medical concerns.

When undergoing treatments with Scar Revision Annapolis patients can address different types of scars, such as:

  • Hypertrophic scars
  • Keloid scars
  • Atrophic scars
  • Contracture scars

Candidates For SCAR REVISION

Scar revision is generally suitable for most individuals seeking to address cosmetic or medical concerns related to scars.

Ideal candidates for scar revision:

  • Have a scar that causes discomfort, restricts movement, or affects their self-confidence.
  • Are in good overall health, with no active skin infections or conditions that may impede the healing process.
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure and understand that while improvements can be made, complete scar eradication may not be possible in every case.

Consultation and PREPARATION

During the consultation for Scar Revision, you will discuss your goals and expectations with our team. Your skin type, medical history, and the size and location of the scar will be considered when determining the best treatment option for you.

In some cases, additional tests may be required to evaluate the underlying tissue to determine if further action is necessary. This can include a skin biopsy for deeper lesions.

To prepare, you should:

  • Avoid applying makeup, lotions, or creams to the treatment area for at least 48 hours before the procedure.
  • Bring a list of any current medications, herbal supplements, or vitamins that you are taking.
  • Do not take aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications for at least ten days before treatment.
  • Stay out of direct sunlight and wear sunscreen for several weeks before and after the treatment to avoid further damage to the skin.


Scar Revision treatments are typically performed under local anesthesia, with a numbing agent applied to the treatment area before the procedure. The length of the procedure will depend on the size and complexity of the scar being treated.

Scar Revision Methods

The specific treatment method will vary, depending on the type of scar you have and your goals. Some of the most common Scar Revision methods are:

  • Chemical peels for scar revision
  • Dermal Fillers for scar revision
  • Microneedling for scar revision
  • Dermabrasion for scar revision
  • Surgical Excision for scar revision

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

The recovery process and aftercare for Scar Revision can vary depending on the treatment method used, the size and location of the scar, and individual patient factors. Here’s an overview of what to expect regarding results, recovery, and aftercare.

In most cases, results are immediate, as the scar is either excised, shaved off, or treated with electrocautery therapy. However, the final appearance of the treated area may take several weeks to months to become apparent as the skin heals and any redness or swelling subsides.
