Do you have facial scars that make you feel less confident? We can help.

Facial scars are unsightly and can cause major embarrassment and distress, particularly scars that are difficult to cover with makeup. Our San Diego scar removal patients come to us with a range of scars to undergo effective treatments to minimize their visibility. We also routinely treat acne patients who have been left with scar tissue.

Why consider scar removal treatment?

Facial scars, especially acne scars, are left behind to remind us of the tissue damage caused and the body’s effort to repair that damage. Scarring is often worsened in acne patients when the blemishes have been popped or picked with fingers or sharp objects. With this additional injury to the skin, further inflammation occurs, and the immune system must work very hard to try and repair the tissue damage, often leading to unsightly scars.

Scar removal treatments will minimize the visibility of scars, allowing you to improve your self-esteem and no longer struggle to cover up the scars when you are in public.

What is recovery like after scar removal?

Scar removal recovery depends on which treatment option you decide to pursue. However, none of the scar removal treatments we offer will require any downtime. You may experience skin peeling with laser skin resurfacing, IPL and a chemical peel, but this usually happens over a period of one to two days.

The most important part of your aftercare is to take care of your skin by protecting it from the sun and adopting a new, healthy skin care regiment. Our doctor and his staff will provide you with detailed instructions for best results.

Scar Removal FAQ's

How do I know which scar removal treatments are right for me?

At your scar removal consultation, Dr. Tirgari will examine your scars and talk to you about the procedures he recommends. You will be informed about pre-treatment preparations as well as aftercare. In many cases, scar removal patients will need more than one treatment session to achieve optimal results. We are confident that we can help you, so please call us today.

How is scar removal for active acne different?

Severe acne scars are typically comprised of bigger, raised areas of scarring next to areas of active acne inflammation. Acne scars in general are the visible remainders of tissue damage to the skin and the body’s efforts to repair the damage from prior acne inflammation. Acne scarring can also occur as a result of popping the pimple or picking at the skin with fingers or other instruments, such as needles.

With this additional damage to the skin, the body’s immune system works even harder trying to repair the damage. As a result, acne scars often occur. With popping blemishes, the scars can become even more prominent, as additional bacteria enter the region from this activity, creating more inflammation.

What is the treatment for acne scars with active acne?

During laser acne scar treatment, laser energy is applied to target lower layers of the skin, stimulating new collagen growth. This helps minimize the scar as well as diminish surface irregularities. The procedure also removes the top layer of dead skin cells, which can block pores. This exposes a healthier skin layer.
