Scar Management San Ramon

Scars are a natural consequence of healing but genetics, skin type and individual differences can change how a person heals. All surgeries will create scars but we can influence how noticeable the scars will be. Early intervention can produce the best results. Sun protection is the key for early scars, appropriate activity restrictions and dressings and products like Silagen can reduce the appearance of scars. Silagen is a silicone gel that has been shown to prevent abnormal scarring and to reduce the thickness and redness of scars.
Laser treatments with the diolite laser can reduce the color of the scars even in scars older than a year that have a darker pigment. Erbium laser treatments can reduce the thickness of existing scars. In some instances, revising the scar surgically is the best option and in most cases this can be done under a local anesthesia in the office. In cases of keloids, surgical excision and radiation therapy has been the only effective method to prevent recurrence of a keloid scar.
