What is Scar and Keloid Treatment?
Scars and keloids are very common skin flaws and can be located on any area of the body and face. While most scars are not a worry, they can be unsightly, unappealing, and annoying. They may be too wide or too big, dark, bumpy, recessed, or raised. Depending on where the scar is located and its state, scar revision surgery may be needed to improve its appearance. Dermatologist Dr. Lauren Dozier offers scar and keloid treatment at Brickell Cosmetic Center. This elective treatment, available to Brickell, Miami, and Key Biscayne, FL men and women, works to reduce the size and improve your scar's appearance. Call our Miami, FL office today to schedule a consultation.
"I’m thrilled to have found this MedSpa. No need to look elsewhere, BCC is everything that you are looking for. Thus far, I have had a hydrafacial and Botox (both for the first time). My experience was fantastic for both procedures. Dr. Dozier assisted in starting me off with the appropriate amount of Botox to achieve my beauty goals. She was very knowledgeable and took my unique skin into consideration when choosing the right plan for me. I felt comfortable and confident in her and am so happy with the results (and this is just the beginning!). I will definitely be coming back and continue to enhance my natural beauty. Thank you Dr. Dozier and staff! You’ll be seeing a lot more of me in the near future."- K.R. / Google / Nov 11, 2020

"This office is great! The place itself is modern and clean. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. I came in for a laser treatment on dark spots on my face and the dermatologist who did my treatment was super sweet making me feel at ease immediately. I would highly recommend this place you will not regret it."- K.S. / Google / Oct 06, 2020
"We’ve been thinking about Botox and fillers for so long. My wife and I saved our pennies, did our research and landed in BCC. I’m so happy we did! The consultation exceeded my expectations. Dr. Dozier’s tact, professionalism and humor made the whole experience so comfortable. She answered our 27,000 questions and was incredibly thorough. The staff in the front is just as professional, humble, INSERT ALL THE POSITIVE ADJECTIVES EVER. It should be noted that you can eat off of every single surface in this office. Incredibly clean/sanitary. Two weeks after our consultation we had our plump. That on its own deserves it own review. When I thought things couldn’t get better they did. You feel like you’re in a dream (mind you they’re sticking needles in your face but i stand by what I say). They have defined what it is to "take care" of someone. My wife and I were first timers and they were so comforting. From the moment we were greeted to the moment we left it was a spa like experience. I can’t thank the staff, nurse and doctor enough. When i saw my lips I became super emotional. They looked phenomenal. It was worth every single penny. The procedure was not painful AT ALL. I don’t consider myself to have a high pain tolerance but they take EXTRA care and make sure you are as comfortable as possible during the whole procedure. Going to a dermatologist makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE. If you are on the ledge about going through with this I beg you to give this place a shot. I’m a nervous rat and someway, some how they managed to make an anxiety ridden experience a relaxing one. Forever grateful. I will update my review with a before and after once I’m healed and ready to go. Oh, and did i mention you can call and text them whenever after your procedure for questions/ concerns ANYTHING. Like I said, they take care of you. Oh and my wife looks like she did when we met 7 years ago. I might even say better. Hope she doesn’t read this."- M.C. / Yelp / Jan 30, 2021
What Can I Expect from My Scar Treatment?
Treatments to revise scars and minimize keloids are usually completed at Brickell Cosmetic Center. Dr. Dozier will employ local anesthesia or sedation based on the extent of the case. The treatment will vary based on the kind of scar. For bumpy or thick scars, she may use a shave excision to level and even out the scar. Scars that are raised and larger can be reduced in size using an oval incision, which removes the scar and some of the tissue and skin around the scar. For scars that were created by improper healing, this can be a dramatic improvement. Large scars or contracture scars sometimes require a skin graft or tissue expansion so that the old scar can be excised, allowing healthy skin and tissue to be sewn together. There are some state-of-the-art laser treatments that may lessen the visibility and color of a scar without the need for surgery. If you have a depressed scar or a scar that looks "pitted," Dr. Dozier may discuss an injectable dermal filler product to create a more even, natural skin texture. Following a scar revision procedure, incision care is the most important part of the post-treatment process. Dr. Lauren Dozier or a member of her staff will provide instructions on how to care for your wound so that the revised scar is smaller, lighter, and thinner. Keep in mind that the scar will not be entirely erased; however, most well-performed scar revision treatments can lead to a natural, softer appearance.
