Scar Therapy

Skin is sensitive and easily damaged, and with the bumps and scrapes of life, scars are inevitable. They can be caused by a variety of things: acne, injury, surgery, or illness (such as chicken pox). Whatever the cause, there are a variety of treatments that can help achieve improvement, including laser scar removal (revision). In Los Angeles, I craft unique solutions for each patient’s needs.

I’d be happy to discuss your options for acne scar removal treatment in Los Angeles. Simply request a consultation online or call our office at  (310) 300-1779.

Before

During your consultation, we’ll discuss your options. These include:

  • Laser treatments
  • Silicone sheeting
  • Steroid injections
  • Surgery

Laser Treatments

Laser treatments use light energy to stimulate collagen production. Discomfort is minimal, usually described as a slight pinching sensation. Patients can return to their usual activities immediately. Several treatments may be required for optimal improvement.

Why Choose Dr. Stoker
Professional Resume

Silicone Sheeting

One of the simplest and most popular scar treatment options is the use of silicone sheeting. The silicone sheet is a soft, flexible material applied directly to the scar, underneath clothing. It is painless and will gradually reduce the appearance of hardened, raised scars. Results are not as dramatic as some other procedures, but there is no discomfort or downtime involved.

Steroid Injections

Certain types of scars may respond to steroid injections. For instance, steroids can be helpful in reducing the itching or discomfort associated with some scars. I’ll carefully assess whether or not steroid injections are a good option for you.

Surgery

Of course, for more dramatic scars or for scars that do not respond to non-invasive treatment, surgery is still an option. Particularly for surgical scar revision, choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon is of the utmost importance. I have the education and experience to improve old scars, without creating equally problematic new scars.
