Surgical Scars

What causes a surgical scar?

A surgical scar is a type of injury to flesh caused by surgery, usually incision, that requires the modification of all layers. Because a surgeon cannot control all the factors that determine the appearance of a scar, treatment after the surgical area has properly healed is sometimes necessary. What causes acne scars?

How can they be treated?

The challenge of a surgical scar lies within the matrix of all the forms or categories of the scars involving hypertrophic and keloid scars and pigmentation flaws. These scars thicken over time. Scar therapy has been historically limited. The Dermapen’s® unique vertical stamping and depth control up to 2.5mm makes treating scars superior to other methods or rollering. With surgical steel integrity, the robust nature of the automated needle tip (11 needles total and sized at thirty-three gauge) penetrate difficult scar tissue, dramatically improving appearance, texture, elasticity, size and mobility.

Treatment Regimen

Scars have altered physiology compared to other skin conditions. Multiple treatments will be needed and vary depending on the severity and type of scar to see desired results.
