What Is Scar Revision? How Does It Work?
A scar is simply the result of a wound that did not heal properly, and they come in all shapes and sizes. Even wounds that heal well can still leave discolored or raised tissue that can affect your appearance. Scar revision aims to reduce or remove scars, allowing your body to replace the damaged tissue with healthy cells. There are multiple types of scars, and each requires a specialized treatment to reduce its visibility or remove the damaged tissue. Fortunately, most scars respond well to non-surgical treatment.
Our treatments use non-surgical methods to boost the body’s own restorative abilities. The goal of each treatment is to break up or shed the damaged tissue and allow your body to replace it with healthy cells for an even texture and color. Each of our treatments is gentle, comfortable, and effective while maintaining patient safety.
Treatments we offer to reduce scars include:
- Laser therapies
- Chemical Peels
Benefits of Scar Revision

Can I Have My Scar Reduced or Removed?
Our non-surgical treatments are ideal for treating cases of keloid scars, hypertrophic scars, and acne scarring. If you have any of these scar types, you could benefit from professional scar revision in our Tampa office. The first step is to schedule your personal scar revision consultation with our double board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Lombardi. During this meeting, we can evaluate your scarring and determine what treatment will be the best for giving you the results you want. We build every aspect of your scar revision treatment around you and your goals, providing complete information and timelines at every step.
Is There a Recovery Period?
With non-surgical scar revision, you do not need to go through a lengthy recovery period. Depending on your treatment, the treated area may be a little red, swollen, or sensitive. Some patients prefer to take a couple days off while this subsides, but most patients return to their daily life right away. In general, there is no interruption to your daily routine and you can resume your usual activities right after each scar revision treatment. Still, if you have any questions or concerns after your scar revision treatment, we are here for you.
For patients who have stronger treatments, there may be slightly more redness or sensitivity. In every case, we will let you know what you can expect fully so there are no surprises around the corner.
When Can I See Results?
We work closely with our patients to build a scar revision plan that will provide optimal results as quickly as possible. We provide you with complete information on what treatments will provide the best results and what those results might look like. Many patients can see completely clear skin within several treatments, but it is important to remember the process is gradual. As your body responds to each treatment, you should see continual improvements.
In general, patients can see their final scar revision results about 3-6 months after treatment. However, this can vary significantly based on the size and type of scarring you want to treat. As part of your consultation, we can provide you with a more specific timeline of what to expect for your unique situation and treatment plan. While some larger scars may not be fully removable, we optimize every treatment to provide the best results possible. Our goal is to help you achieve skin that you feel comfortable in, skin you can be proud to show off to those around you.
