A scar results from the repair of the skin caused by accidents, illnesses, acne or surgery. It is a natural part of the repair process. The greater the damage of the skin, the greater the chance of a scar becoming evident. Typically a scar may initially appear red and thick, and then gradually fade away. Many wounds heal actively in about 3 months, but may take longer. The way the scar forms is affected by age, genetic tendency, and body location. Younger skins make quick repairs and tend to heal by forming large, thickened and hardened scars.
Scar treatments focuses on removing superficial layers of the skin and giving a more homogenous contour to the surface of the skin, favoring the improvement of the scars. Often the scar cannot be removed completely. In the case of minor scars, often only dermabrasion may be necessary. Many sessions may be needed on deeper or more extensive defects, such as deep acnes scars. Acne scars or other types of scars (atrophic) can be improved with laser skin resurfacing. Hypertrophic scars (enlarged and thickened) or keloids typically require two or more pulsed dye laser sessions, every 2 months. Currently fractioned laser have provided excellent results with faster healing and less local discomfort.
