If your scars are bothersome, I can help. Scars can be aesthetically unpleasant and make people self-conscious resulting in lower self-esteem. Scars can make people feel stigmatized, triggering a reminder of a painful experience. Scars can also create physical pain such as severe itching and discomfort.
There are a number of factors that affect scarring, including blood supply, skin tone color, and thickness of your skin, depth, location or size of the original wound. Your age, ethnicity, and genetics are other considerations when considering getting scar treatment.
If you've suffered an injury or had surgery, you will need to wait at least 3 months before getting scar removal treatments. My goal is to minimize your scar and make it as inconspicuous as possible and have it blend in with your surrounding skin tone.

What are the risks?
Scar removal is a safe procedure that can include minor risks such as a reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, change in skin sensation, delayed healing, infection, recurrence of an unsightly scar or skin discoloration and contour irregularities. I pride myself on safety and I take every precaution possible to give you the best scar removal Orlando can offer you.
Am I a candidate for scar removal?
If you are bothered by a scar, in good physical health, a non-smoker and do not have active acne or other skin diseases, you are a good candidate for scar removal .
A consultation is crucial before any Orlando scar removal procedure. You are unique, your scars are unique: we must consider the characteristics of your scar and your skin type. Together, we will determine whether you will need more than one treatment to remove or reduce your scar.
If you are a smoker, it is important that you quit at least two weeks before a treatment. You will need to stop taking aspirin and medications that are known to delay healing as well as skin care products that contain glycolic or retinoic acid. We will go over all the details during your consultation.
Together, we can come up with a treatment that will work best for you, aligning with your expectations. The goal is to help you not feel self-conscious and to improve and resolve an issue that has likely been bothering you for a long time.
