Scar Revision in Monroe, LA
Scars serve an important purpose — to quickly close a wound and prevent infection. Unfortunately, this part of the body’s healing process leaves a mark that stands out from the surrounding skin. Dr. Janine Hopkins, M.D., F.A.A.D., board-certified dermatologist, offers scar revision for men and women in Monroe, Shreveport, the Ark-La-Miss and the surrounding areas of Northeast Louisiana.
What is Scar Revision?
The reason that scars are easily detected is that collagen fibers were quickly produced to close a wound. Collagen fibers are an important part of your skin, and when collagen production operates at a normal rate, the fibers develop in a structured pattern. In the case of a wound, though, the fibers develop quickly and without any clear pattern. Therefore, your scar has a different color and texture than the surrounding skin. Scar revision helps to blend the scar in with the natural color.
What Are the Benefits of Scar Revision?
Scar revision helps make your scar less visible. Our techniques do not require surgery or downtime.
How Do I Know If I Need Scar Revision?
The two factors that determine if scar revision is necessary are cosmetic appearance and implications to surrounding tissues, such as a scar that interferes with range of motion. Dr. Hopkins discusses the advantages of your scar revision treatment plan during your appointment.
What Should I Expect from Scar Revision?
You should protect the area for the first few days to ensure proper healing.
