What Causes Scars?

Scars are a common skin problem that can form after many types of skin trauma. Many things can cause scarring, including:

  • surgery,
  • acne,
  • burns, or
  • other accidents.

One of the most common reasons individuals seek cosmetic treatment for scarring is because of acne. Acne can leave many types of scars or marks long after your teen years are over. 

Getting Rid of Scars

A number of cosmetic treatments can improve skin damage caused by all kinds of scars. Scar treatments can help improve:

  • surgical scars,
  • burns,
  • acne scars, and
  • scars from other traumatic injuries.

Laser treatment is a fast and effective way to treat scars from a variety of different causes.  

Fillers and neuromodulators like Botox can also improve certain types of scars by making them less visible.
