Significant burns, old wounds, irregular lacerations, and cuts that become infected before healing can sometimes develop a scar. While some scars naturally reduce in appearance with age, many remain. If the dermal aberration is in a highly visible location can have a negative impact on your self-image and self-confidence.
In a scenario such as this, you should consider setting up a consultation appointment with a surgeon Dr. Leon Goldstein and the staff specialists at The Office of Dr. Leon Goldstein. After assessing the severity of the scar and any related factors he can help you understand the most effective methods for minimizing the scar’s visible presence.
In some of these cases, a laser resurfacing treatment can effectively alter the appearance of a minor or slightly raised scar. Dr. Leon Goldstein can often accomplish this in an outpatient appointment to alter the upper dermal layers. In the case of a more significant scar, the treatment process might not fully remove the scar. However, it can effectively lessen its appearance and help bring it closer to the surrounding healthy skin.
Dr. Leon Goldstein can help you understand the necessary aftercare measures you need for reducing the appearance of scars. This often includes applying a topical antibiotic cream and routine changing of bandages.
