Scare Treatment New York, NY

A scar will form from an injury caused by an accident, disease, skin condition, or surgery. A scar is the result of the body’s natural healing process. The body forms new collagen fibers to heal when the skin is damaged. Scars can appear flat, raised, sunken, or stretched. Scars will naturally fade over time. Scars that do not heal properly, cause disfigurement, or restrict movement may need scar revision.

Types of Scars

  • Discoloration or Skin Irregularities: These types of scars do not cause discomfort of the injured area but they can be aesthetically improved by scar revision procedures.
  • Hypertrophic: These scars appear as thick clusters of scar tissue that widen over time. They are raised, red, and can be uncomfortable.
  • Keloids: These scars can be painful and itchy. They can develop mostly on the face, neck, ears, chest, or shoulders.
  • Contractures: These scars can restrict movement because the skin and tissue will stretch together during healing. These scars can occur where a large part of the tissue is missing or where a wound crosses a joint in the fingers, elbows, knees, or the neck.

Karmita Avila

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
