Annapolis area dermatologist offers scar revision services

When trauma or injury to the skin has occurred, it is well known that scars will develop. Patients in the Annapolis area who have scars may have had surgery or a traumatic incident that caused the body to heal the wound but leave behind a telltale sign of that day. When patients have scars on very visible areas of the body, they may feel extremely self-conscious about their appearance and may have trouble dealing with what has been left behind during nature’s healing process. Dr. Cheryl Burgess sees many patients struggling with these concerns and can help with scar revision treatments.

Scar revision treatment allows the team at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery to address scarring in a way that is affordable and effective without creating new scars. First, our board certified dermatologist will have to evaluate the skin and determine the type of scar that is present. There are many different types including keloids and hypertrophic scars. There are also specific scars that are associated with burns and are much deeper. After the type of scar has been determined, patients can then discuss with their dermatologist the solutions available to them.

For minor scars that have caused discoloration and redness, topical medications may be used. Other scars, such as acne scars, may improve with treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. In some cases, patients may undergo surgical excision. While this procedure may leave a scar behind, it is often less noticeable and much smaller than the scar being treated. This is only done as a last effort if other solutions are not effective.

Dr. Cheryl Burgess and the staff of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery are here to assist new and existing patients with skin and body concerns, both medical and cosmetic. Our staff has the education, training, and experience to help others in improving the health and wellness of their skin and body with state-of-the-art treatments and high quality skin care products. Contact us today to book a consultation appointment.
