After an injury, surgery, or minor trauma, a scar may form as the body tries to repair the damage to the skin. Although there are many different causes, most scars will show a change in, overgrowth of, or depletion in collagen production. These scars can be permanent, but there are treatment modalities that can repair, reduce the production of, or rebuild new collagen. Visits concerning scarring require a more in-depth consultation where the cause of the scarring and the best solution can be paired with your lifestyle and products. Acne scars are particularly difficult to manage depending on their presentation. In order to adequately treat acne scars, patients will need a comprehensive consultation to address both their acne and the resulting scarring.
