A scar can mar the face and rob an individual of stunning beauty. All it takes is a little raised scar or a burn mark on the face to cause traumatic experience to the individual. Cosmetic surgery, reconstructive surgery has advanced to levels where individuals can look forward to a whole new face. With such advances in reconstructive surgery, it is possible to set right minor or major issues caused by injuries, burns, diseases etc. Let us a nice and close look at scar revision surgery in India.
Hypertrophic scars or elevated scars
These scars are caused by the condition of excessive collagen deposit. This cutaneous condition can be rectified through laser treatment that involves fractional co2. Also, known popularly as skin resurfacing it is smoothens out the skin by removing the excess deposits of collagen. These scars can also occur as a result of injuries, accidental or deliberate. Rather than having to mask the area with heavy makeup which may appear gaudy and too flashy, the best option is to go under the laser of a trained and experienced dermatologist.
Inflammatory acne induced depressed scarring
Inflammatory acne can induce depressed scarring which is actually more of a resident atop a collagen rich fibrous tissue. Setting it right will involve the use reconstructive surgery such as Erbium laser resurfacing. The laser works by resurfacing skin and stimulating new collagen to form and fill. The procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthesia, but here again it also depends on the location in the face where the scar removal surgery needs to be performed. Erbium laser resurfacing offers excellent results over multiple sessions.
Results manifest over time
Most of the individuals who opt for laser scar revision surgery expect overnight results. However, the expectations are unreasonable and can never be met. The results of a scar removal surgery will begin to be visible a week after the surgery, with the best possible results actually manifesting months after the surgery has been performed. Many factors contribute to the efficiency of the surgery – such as the orientation of the scar, its size, the complexion and texture of the skin etc.
