Scar Removal

Drastically Reduce Visibility Of Scar Tissue Using Our Expert Scar Removal Treatments
Scar removal treatment

Many people may ask how they can remove scars from face, or remove scars from legs. Whether the result of surgery, injury, skin inflammation, infection, or skin problems such as acne; scars are something with which the majority of us must deal with. Though scar formation is part of the body’s natural healing process, scars can hinder movement or be emotionally distressing. While scar removal is not 100%, there are many effective treatments that can drastically reduce the visibility of scar tissue. Los Angeles dermatologist, Dr. Brian Mekelburg, is an expert in several scar reduction treatment methods.

Intra-Lesional Cortisone Injections

Intra-Lesional Cortisone Injections

A quick and nearly painless process, this procedure involves a diluted corticosteroid being injected directly into the scar tissue. These injections are very effective in shrinking hypertrophic and keloid scars.
Scar Treatment Laser: Vbeam®, AffirmTM

Scar Treatment Laser: Vbeam®, AffirmTM

Both the Vbeam and Affirm lasers are FDA approved for the treatment of scars. The Vbeam laser produces a gentle burst of light that selectively destroys the blood vessels of vascular lesions, promotes collagen production, improves skin texture, and reduces redness. While results can be observed after the first treatment, several Vbeam treatments are usually needed to truly reduce the visibility of a scar. The Affirm laser system utilizes an ablative laser that destroys the unwanted collagen on the scar and, in a controlled manner, stimulates collagen formation that is more natural and similar to the normal skin surrounding the scar, allowing it to blend better.
