What Is Scar Tissue Removal?

Many people have scar tissue that is formed on our skin from trauma. Our skin is strong, and is the protective barrier for our organs and the environment. If you have injuries, incision scars, burns, or other types of scarring this can make you self-conscious, or may not look the way you would like.

Our skin heals in various ways, and when the skin is healing around an injury this can cause the skin to look bumpy or thick. The body produces new collagen to heal the area, and this area will look different compared to an area of the skin that was not injured. This type of skin is scar tissue, and in most cases can be flat, but others can be raised above the surface of the skin.

Can Scar Tissue Be Removed?

Scar tissue can make people feel self-conscious because of the way your skin looks. Looking at the area can remind you of what happened, or the trauma that you endured. New technology allows for the removal of scar tissue so you do not have to live with that bumpy scarred skin anymore. Scar tissue can easily be removed with laser treatment to help fade, smooth, and restore your skin.
