Scars anywhere on the body can be a cosmetic concern, but they can be especially concerning when they are located on your face. Whether the result of acne, chicken pox, burns, surgery or other circumstances, facial scars can detract from your overall appearance and impact your confidence.
Although scarring is part of your body’s natural healing process, sometimes too much or too little collagen is produced during this process, which can result in indented or bumpy scars on your face. Facial scar treatments can help to restore an even and smooth texture to your skin by significantly reducing or completely eliminating scar tissue.

About Facial Scar Treatment
Facial scars can be particularly frustrating because they’re nearly impossible to hide or cover up. If scarring on your face is interfering with your self-confidence, know that there are a variety of facial scar removal options that can help to restore your skin’s smooth, even appearance.
During your consultation, you can discuss your specific problem spots and goals for your final results with one of our experienced cosmetic surgeons, who can help you to determine if you’re a good candidate for scar removal treatment and which procedure might be best for you.
Your Facial Scar Removal Procedure
Depending on the cause and type of scarring you have, different solutions might work better than others for your skin. To accommodate your unique needs, we offer a wide range of facial scar treatment options:
In some cases, a surgical procedure is the best way to remove severe facial scars. Excisional surgery is the process of surgically removing scar tissue, and may be a good option for keloid, or raised, scars. Other situations may call for punch grafting, in which the scar is cut away and replaced with a graft of smooth, healthy skin.
Subcision works by creating tiny holes with a special instrument in the affected area(s), which then stimulates your body’s natural collagen production to repair your skin. This process can yield excellent scar removal results and typically takes about an hour to perform.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
By directing pulses of laser light at the scar tissue, laser skin resurfacing can also trigger a boost of collagen production in your skin, which can reduce or eliminate discoloration and other unwanted effects of facial scarring.
Skin Rejuvenation Procedures
Microdermabrasion and chemical peels are nonsurgical scar removal options for facial scars. Microdermabrasion uses tiny abrasive crystals that sweep away the outer layer of skin cells from your face, revealing a fresh new layer. Similarly, chemical peels work by exfoliating the outer layer of skin to reveal new, regenerated skin. Each of these skin rejuvenation procedures can help with facial scar removal while enhancing your overall skin tone.
Your Recovery & Results
Your facial scar treatment recovery will depend on which scar removal procedure you choose, but generally speaking, you can expect to notice a significant improvement in skin tone and texture shortly after your treatment. In some cases, multiple sessions may be necessary to maximize your results.
