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. Our dermatology team offer 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.

Scar and Keloid Treatments Reviews
"Came to get treatment for hypertrophic scars from a rather bad chin lift elsewhere. At one session they proposed to improve the look with the Morpheus 8 procedure and I went through it. While I'm still recovering I must say the experience has been fantastic. Very professional and empathic people, Dr Dozier has the eyes for what's needed and the skills to perform it. A truely heart warming experience and I feel confident to have a good result after recovering."- C.J. / Google / Feb 12, 2023

What Can I Expect from My Scar Treatment?
Treatments to revise scars and minimize keloids are usually completed at Brickell Cosmetic Center. Our dermatologists 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," we 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. A member of our 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.
