Scar Revision Treatments in Houston
Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and in many ways, it is quite resilient. However, a tear in its surface can sometimes result in visible damage. As the body heals a wound, scarring naturally occurs, but that doesn’t mean we have to suffer from the psychologically and aesthetically debilitating effects of scarring. Even the smallest of facial scars can be enough to make most people feel self-conscious. But while many might believe they have to go through their lives, perpetually enduring the negative effects of scars resulting from acne, burns, or accidents, you can find relief immediately.
Dr. Freeman offers highly effective surgical solutions to minimize the prominence and visibility of facial scars.
Effective Scar Removal Therapy
Though there are many treatment options for scars, including over-the-counter and prescription creams, ointments, or gels, these treatments often contain harsh chemicals and can result in greater wounds and injuries if you don’t know how to properly use them. Many of these topical treatments don’t even offer any visible sign of scar reduction, even when patients commit themselves to a vigorous routine of creams and peels.
Though many are left to believe their scars will never diminish, Dr. Freeman offers an array of products and solutions that will quickly and effectively produce exceptional results, many of which may not even require surgery. Our office carries many pharmaceutical-grade skin care products that can improve your appearance and reduce the visibility and prominence of scars.
Personalized Skin Treatment Options
Injections are another method that can help eliminate the appearance of scars. Finding a competent and skilled facial plastic surgeon in Texas who can prescribe the appropriate medication and devise a careful treatment plan to address your concerns is paramount. In many cases, a treatment plan involving the use of prescription ointments and injections can lead to a patient’s’ desired result, but it takes an experienced facial plastic surgeon to recognize the optimal combination scar reduction therapy that will yield the best results for each patient’s unique skincare needs. Dr. Freeman works carefully with all of his patients to develop a plan that will best improve their appearance.
Deeper scars can benefit greatly from an innovative technique called laser resurfacing. During the procedure, the skin is exposed to a concentrated pulse of laser light that removes away the uppermost layers of skin that have been damaged to reveal a new layer of healthy skin that is scar and blemish-free. The procedure also eliminates many fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.
Laser resurfacing is a popular cosmetic procedure in Houston because of its ability to treat older and more pronounced scars as well, including severe acne scars and stretchmarks.
Additional Scar Treatment Options
Chemical peels or bleaching cream can also improve a scar’s appearance. If the results with topical treatments are not satisfactory, scars can be removed surgically, or they can be blended with the surrounding skin using dermabrasion. The result? An improved appearance and renewed self-confidence.
You do not have to live with the embarrassment of scars. Dr. Freeman can help you attain the flawless skin you desire and deserve.
