About Scar Revision Treatments

Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are the unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Even a wound that heals well can result in a scar that affects your appearance. Here at Signature Clinic we are well versed in all types of scar and know the best way to treat them.

What is a Scar?

Discoloration or surface irregularities and other more subtle scars can be cosmetically improved by surgery or other treatments recommended by your plastic surgeon. These types of scars do not impair function or cause physical discomfort and include acne scars as well as scars resulting from minor injury and prior surgical incisions.

Hypertrophic scars are thick clusters of scar tissue that develop directly at a wound site. They are often raised, red and/or uncomfortable and may become wider over time. They can be hyperpigmented (darker in colour) or hypopigmented (lighter in colour).

Keloids are larger than hypertrophic scars. They can be painful or itchy and may even pucker. They extend beyond the edges of the original wound. Keloids can occur anywhere, but they develop more commonly where there is little underlying fatty tissue, such as on the face, neck, ears, chest or shoulders.

Contractures are scars that restrict movement due to skin and underlying tissue that pull together during healing. They can occur when there is a large amount of tissue loss, such as after a burn. Contractures also can form where a wound cross a joint, restricting movement of the fingers, elbows, knees or neck.

Scar Revision FAQ

At what age can scar revision be performed?2020-12-15T13:04:54+00:00

Scar revision can be performed at any age.

Will scar revision get rid of my scar altogether?2020-12-15T13:06:32+00:00

No; surgical scar revision procedures themselves will produce scarring, but the goal is to create a much less obvious scar. Treatments for scarring can sometimes produce remarkable improvement, and it is possible to revise a scar to be almost invisible in some cases.

How long will I have to wait to receive scar revision?2020-12-15T13:07:02+00:00

Unfortunately, it is not possible to improve a scar directly after the injury occurs. It is generally a good idea to wait until after the scar “matures”, which can take about a year or more. Our surgeons will be able to advise you as to whether or not you are ready to receive treatment.

Can all scars be treated?2020-12-15T13:07:44+00:00

While theoretically most scars can be treated, our surgeons will evaluate your concerns on an individual basis and estimate how much, if any, improvement is likely from various treatments. Some scars are not severe enough to warrant treatment, while other scars may require more extensive reconstructive procedures to improve.

Can keloids come back if removed?2020-12-15T13:09:42+00:00

Unfortunately, yes. Removed keloids are often gone for good, however in some cases, they can reoccur.
