Scar Revision

Unsightly scars as a result of previous acne, blister, injury or infection are permanent and can impede movement or alter your appearance. There are numerous factors affecting scar formation, such as your skin type, the location of scar and the severity of the wound. Skin pigmentation, abnormal directions, texture and raised overgrowths of scar tissue (keloids) all make a scar more noticeable. At Allure Aesthetic Surgery of Beverly Hills, Dr. David Shamouelian, a highly-experienced face plastic surgeon, offers scar revision treatment to improve your appearance and restore function.

Scar Revision Procedure

Dr. Shamouelian offers various options for scar revision, such as laser, injectable or surgical treatments.
