Regardless of the type of scar you have, we understand that scars can have a negative affect
on your self-esteem. Scars come in all shapes,
sizes and colors, but the thing that is consistent is that they can be difficult
to treat. There are several scar removal treatments including surgery, laser scar removal,
and injections. At Celibre, our Los Angeles and Orange County clinics focus on laser scar removal.
We set realistic expectations for our laser scar removal Los Angeles and Orange County patients about the potential for
their scar removal
program. This is because in many cases it is difficult to know exactly how a scar
will respond because every one is different.
Keloid Scars: Keloid scars are bumpy colored scars formed by dense
fibrous tissue. They typically result from the healing of a skin injury and are
more prevalent in Asians, Hispanics, African Americans and those with darker skin
Keloid scars are a unique type of scar in that they usually extend beyond the boundaries
of the original trauma. Keloid scars can continue to grow over
time, whereas surgical and other types of scars typically do not get any bigger
or worse with time. Keloid scars have a high incidence of recurrence if they are
Surgical Scars: Surgical scars are raised scars that appear after
a surgery or other deep cut in the skin. Surgical scars typically remain within
the boundaries of the original incision and may also shrink and lose pigment over
time. Surgery scars are similar to pigmented scars in that some form of skin trauma
caused the skin to bring color to the area during the healing process.
Pigmented Scars: Pigmented scars generally appear at the surface
of the skin at the site of an injury and can fade over time as the area heals. Bringing
pigment to the area of the skin that has been traumatized is a normal part of the
inflammatory response and this response is typically more pronounced in darker skin
Keloids and surgical scars are caused by the excess production
of collagen bundles at the site of an injury or trauma. These collagen bundles typically
occur in areas of the skin that do not heal well. Pigmented scars are caused by
excess melanin (the body's natural coloring) which is brought to the injured area
as part of the natural healing process. Excess pigment develops as part of the natural
inflammatory response that occurs after an injury to the skin.
We have the ability to revise and improve the texture and color of many
different types of scars
including keloid, surgical and pigmented scars. Depending on the type of mark, scar
removal options can be limited because in some cases, removing one scar can create
another. It is difficult, if not impossible, to say whether or not your scar is a good
candidate for laser scar removal until we see it and understand what about it you
would like to change - color, texture or size. We have lasers specifically designed
to revise the color and texture of scars and we can also advise you on other scar
removal options if we feel that lasers won't help.
Our courteous and professional medical staff are available to answer all your questions
about scar removal and will help you select the best treatment option for your scar.
We'll determine if you're a good candidate for laser scar removal, and if so, which
lasers can help, how many treatments it will take and how much the procedures will
cost. Celibre has performed tens of thousands of laser procedures and with over
20 state-of-the-art lasers we can safely and effectively treat all skin types and
many different types of scars. Let us help you get rid of your scars. Contact us now or come to our conveniently located
