Pediatric Scar Revision
Scarring is a normal bodily process that seeks to heal any break in the skin. When a wound occurs, the body rushes collagen, elastin and other building materials to the site to rapidly close the wound with new skin. This quick repair is almost always different in color and can form somewhat irregularly. Pediatric scar revision is sometimes desirable or necessary when children have been injured.
Unsightly scars or scars that prohibit movement or development can be surgically revised to minimize their appearance and allow for unrestricted movement. Smaller scars are more easily treated and can sometimes benefit from non-surgical scar revision techniques, like laser treatments and microneedling. Larger or more complex scars require advanced surgical procedures to minimize their appearance or otherwise revise them to allow patients to live their best life.
