Scarring can result from virtually anything that damages your skin including: chicken pox, lacerations, acne, sports injuries, tattoos, burns, trauma, accidents, piercings, vaccinations, bites, and surgery. Abnormal scars can be raised, thick, depressed, uneven, vascular, darker (hyperpigmented), or paler (hypopigmented) than the adjacent skin. All of these features allow the scar to stand out visually against the surrounding normal skin.
It is true that a scar will never completely disappear but fortunately, there are many methods available today that can help improve a scar’s appearance. The Springs Laser & Med Spa, offers laser scar treatments as an excellent option for cosmetically improving the appearance of scars, especially those that are red, purple or brown in their coloration.
