Laser Scar Removal
Before and After Pictures
Keloid Scars: Keloid scars are bumpy colored scars formed by dense
fibrous tissue. They typicallyy 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.
