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.

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.
