Scar Removal in Boca Raton, FL

Everyone has scars from injuries whether old or recent. Most scars are minor and fade over time, although some are large and very noticeable causing people to be self-conscious about them. Daniel Man, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon, performs scar removal on people living in Boca Raton, FL and the surrounding areas who want to diminish or erase the evidence of large, visible scars.

How are Scars Formed?

When people are injured causing the skin to split open, the healing process of the wound often leaves a terribly, visible scar. While today’s technology and expertise from surgeons minimize the evidence of scars, there are some that do not heal properly or never treated as they should have been, resulting in a scar.

Types of Scars

Depending on the type of wound and skin type, there are several types of scars:

  • Acne Scars: These scars form from more severe cases of acne. Acne scars have a ruddy appearance in the face or are red and raised.
  • Atrophic Scars:This type of scar is flat or may leave a circular dent where they form. Atrophic scars often result from acne.
  • Contracture Scars: Scars from burns are contracture scars and appear to stretch tightly across the skin as protection.
  • Hypertrophic Scars:When collagen rushes to an injury and does not break down, it leaves a hypertrophic scar that is thicker and raised. As time progresses, they are not quite as raised but are always limited to the injury.
  • Keloid Scars: A keloid scar is one that covers more than an injured area. This is the type of scar that develops with a large or long cut or incision.

Is Scar Removal Right for Me?

Scar removal is right for you if you have a large or prominent scar that makes you self-conscious about your appearance. If you get tired of having to explain how you got the scar, removing it or at least diminishing its appearance may be of great benefit to you.

How Involved is Scar Removal?

There are several ways to diminish or erase the signs of a scar based on the type of scar. Dr. Man provides laser treatments, fillers, and even at home treatments, such as topical creams, to reduce the appearance of the scar. Surgery may also be an option for scars that did not heal properly but is considered an advanced option for major scars or when other options have not yielded satisfactory results.

How Do Laser Treatments Remove Scars?

Laser treatments are very effective at reducing the appearance of and even erasing scars. Laser devices are moved over the scars so that layers of skin are burned away to reveal fresh new skin that heals leaving very little to no evidence that the scar was there.

With laser scar removal there is some discomfort from the heat of the laser, but it diminishes as soon as the treatment is complete. To offset any discomfort, it is possible to apply a numbing cream if necessary.

How is the Recovery from Scar Removal?

With laser scar removal, most patients return to normal activities immediately following their appointment. Depending on the location and extent of the treatment, we may recommend patients take it easy for a couple of days. The most important thing about laser scar removal is that patients must stay out of the sun until the area is fully healed to prevent any discoloration.

How Much Does Scar Removal Cost?

The cost for scar removal varies depending on the type of treatment used, the type of scar being treated and its extent in terms of coverage and depth. During your consultation, Dr. Man will evaluate the scar, recommend the best treatment and provide detailed costs, as well as payment options and financing.

What Do I Do Next?

To have scar removal or find out information about it, we recommend you schedule a consultation with Dr. Man so that he can evaluate your scar to determine the best method for removing it. Once that is done, you can lay out a plan and make appointments for the treatments.

People living in Boca Raton, FL and the surrounding communities who want to have scar removal can turn to Dr. Daniel Man, a Florida board-certified plastic surgeon. Please contact us to set up your consultation today.

    The experience I had at Dr. Man's office was incredible. From the time I walked into his office, you are greeted professionally by his staff. Dr.Man's office is very beautiful with that very warm welcoming feeling. My husband & I went for a consultation to replace my old saline filled implants to silicone implants with a mastopexy & down size from a DD to a possible C or D cup, he really understood what I wanted and my expectations.
