Scar Reduction

August 03, 2015  |   Posted by :   |   Uncategorized   |   0 Comment»

Until fairly recently only plastic surgery could change the appearance of a scar. Better understanding of how the body heals itself has led to significant new ways to improve the appearance of even old scars. For many years we have used injections of steroids into bulky scars, but it has always been difficult to get an even distribution of the drug in these very dense tissues. Now with Laser Assisted Drug Delivery, we use the CO2 laser to drill hundreds of tiny columns into the scar, and apply the medication through these entry points. In doing this we discourage further proliferation of fibroblasts, the scar forming cells, and in turn this diminishes the scar size.
