Acne scarring can include indents in the skin and discolorations on the surface of the skin. You may have scars on your face reminding you of your teenage years that now interfere with your self-esteem.

We can address different options including Scar Revision Surgery and Z-Plasty. In this day and age, the effects and damage from acne conditions are highly correctable.

Scar Revision Surgery

Scar revision surgery will attempt to minimize a scar so that it is less conspicuous and blends in with the surrounding skin tone and texture. Scars, the unavoidable results of injury or acne, create poor healing that contributes to obvious, unsightly or even disfiguring qualities. Scars may be noticeable due to their size, shape or location. They can appear to be raised or depressed and may differ in color or texture from the surrounding healthy tissue. Revision surgery involves minimally invasive procedures with advanced techniques in wound closure.

Z-Plasty

Z-Plasty is a procedure that is used to improve the cosmetic appearance of scars. With this technique, it is possible to redirect a scar into better alignment with a natural skin fold or the lines of least skin tension. Contracted scars may be lengthened with this technique, causing the scare to be less observable.
