Post-Surgery Scar Removal
Scars can be an unsightly trace left on your skin after surgery. Scars usually fade with time, but some people are left with visible surgery scars that appear uneven, raised, sunken, or discolored. Dr. Sajan offers treatments that can significantly reduce the appearance of surgical scars, or speed healing after undergoing cosmetic surgery.
Microneedling for scar removal in Seattle
Microneedling induces natural collagen production, producing a smoothing effect on visible surgical scars. As collagen production increases, scarred skin can be significantly improved in appearance. Microneedling performed with PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, boosts the healing effects of the treatment. Platelet-rich plasma is loaded with growth factors that stimulate healing and cell regeneration. PRP is extracted from a small quantity of your blood and applied to scar tissue, regenerating cell growth to enhance skin quality in areas damaged by surgery.
What causes surgical scars?
Your body reacts to incisions by ordering the skin to heal. A build-up of collagen fibers (fibroblasts), is generated to restore the integrity of the skin. Some patients experience more significant surgical scars, either raised, flat, or discolored. If you are unhappy with the appearance of surgical scars, we offer a treatment that works: Microneedling with PRP.
How does microneedling help patients remove scars post-surgery?
Dr. Sajan performs microneedling treatments for scar removal post-surgery to encourage scar tissue to fade and become less visible. Your skin may not have healed smoothly. Microneedling performed on surgical scars will stimulate the scarred skin tissue to produce natural collagen, uniformly. Depending on the size and type of scar this may require six or more treatments, spaced every four weeks, allowing your skin to heal between treatments.
Is there a recovery time? When will I see results?
Surgical scars can fade more quickly, appear smoother and less visible, with a treatment that requires only minutes to perform, with very little recovery time; your skin heals within a day or two, with swelling or redness fading away. The depth of the needles can be adjusted to match the depth and severity of the surgical scar.
