Whether a scar results from an accident or a previous surgery, for many people it is not a badge of courage but an unsightly or even deforming mark. Although scars generally cannot be removed completely, scar revision can reduce the severity of its appearance. Combination therapies of microdermabrasion and light lasers can reduce the appearance of scars. Topical creams (such as Dr. Copeland’s Pigment Formula) effectively reduce discolorations of scars. Talk to Dr. Copeland about the best option for you.
