Enhance the Appearance of Your Scar with Scar Revision Treatment
Scars come in all shapes and sizes and are often considered badges of courage or a reminder of a person’s strength and resilience. For some people, however, scars can (understandably) be a cosmetic nuisance or even trigger unwanted memories. Whatever the reason for wanting to fade your scars, we can help.
At Injecting Confidence Aesthetic Medicine in Centennial, CO, registered nurse and aesthetician Katie Guest performs a comprehensive range of skin rejuvenation and scar revision treatments that can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars, burn scars, surgical scars, and other types of scarring to help patients look and feel more confident.
How can I get rid of my scar?
In most cases, injuries and incisions heal on their own and leave a scar that fades to some degree. For some patients, scars become virtually invisible over time, while other people have dark, raised, or even crater-like scars that impact their confidence and self-esteem. In the early stages of healing and fading, topical scar products and certain supplements can aid in these processes, though not always.
Even when at-home scar fading techniques do work, they aren’t typically able to produce the same results that would be possible with a professional treatment or procedure. For the most effective scar treatment possible, patients should consider in-office scar revision by an aesthetic expert.
What options do I have for scar revision treatment?
During your initial consultation for scar revision in Centennial, CO, Katie will carefully assess the nature and severity of your scar, your skin type and tone, and other factors to determine the most appropriate scar treatment for you. Some of the most popular and effective scar revision treatments include:
What kinds of scars can laser scar revision treat?

How soon can I get scar revision?
Patients considering scar revision treatment should first let their scar heal and fade on its own. It is important to keep in mind that this process can take up to 1 – 2 years in some cases, and patients are encouraged to wait until the end of this window to assess the final appearance of their scar before scheduling a scar revision treatment. In the meantime, to give your scar the best possible chance for natural healing and fading, use these helpful tips:
- Avoid exposing the scar to direct sunlight
- Wear sunscreen
- Eat a healthy, balanced diet
- Take supplements to encourage healing as recommended
- Use topical scar care products as recommended
- Drink plenty of water
- Do not smoke
If you have practiced these routines regularly over the course of 1 – 2 years and are still unhappy with the appearance of your scar, we would be pleased to help determine the most appropriate scar revision treatment.
