Acne and Surgical Scar Revision:

Whether you have a surgical scar, an acne scar, or a scar left behind from an old injury, its appearance might be bothersome or even embarrassing – especially if the scar is on your face. Fortunately, thanks to medical breakthroughs, it is possible to improve the appearance of all kinds of scars with simple topical treatments, minimally-invasive in-office procedures, and in some cases even surgical revision. No scar can be completely erased, but these treatments can vastly improve their appearance. In some cases, your dermatologist will want to try topical medications, dermal fillers, and in-office procedures – or perhaps even a combination of these – to improve the appearance of your scar before scheduling surgery, but this will depend on the type and severity of your scar, as well as its location on your body.

Microneedling has been shown to be effective for the treatment of acne scars on the face, particularly when combined with platelet-rich plasma therapy. If you are a candidate for surgical revision, the extent of your surgery will once again be determined by the severity and location of the scar. Often, the goal involves the complete surgical removal of the old scar via a carefully-controlled incision. Once the tissue has been removed, the dermatologist will then close your wound in layers to help minimize any further scarring. The end result is a much smaller scar that is not as noticeable after it has completely healed.

I have been going to Dr. Lunder for 15 years+. She is a wonderful dermatologist. She watches for precancerous spots and takes great care of my skin. She is always willing to discuss cosmetic treatments but never pushes anything. Her assistant Sue is also knowledgeable and comforting. Her office Premier Dermatology has a very welcome staff. I highly recommend Dr. Lunder and this office.
