Several types of scars can result from trauma, injury, a burn, acne, or a skin condition. For example, a burn injury can lead to a contracture scar. A keloid scar could result from from a cut, wound or other injury. A surgical scar, piercing or tattoo could also cause a keloid to form. When the skin is injured, thick tissue forms around it causing the scar to be larger than the injury.

Skin and Cancer Institute offers scar removal procedures including cortisone injections, silicone dioxide gel, cryotherapy liquid nitrogen, microdermabrasion, microneedling, facial peel and laser treatments.

We utilize lasers such as PDT photodynamic therapy, Fractional C02 laser, and a pulse dye laser called VBeam Perfecta.
