A scar is the result of a wound repair in the skin and other tissue of the body. Although scarring is a natural part of the healing process, it can leave a mark on the body that we are not happy with. We are proud to assist the residents of Richmond, Virginia and the surrounding areas with dermabrasion and scar revision.

Scar revision can be performed in our office or in an outpatient surgery setting. Scar revision surgery can be combined with dermabrasion so that you can achieve the best possible results.

In order to receive dermabrasion, the acne must be inactive prior to treatment.
The healing process will take several days and we will provide you with specific guidelines to follow for your activities. Since the area of a scar varies from person to person, during your consultation will we give you those directions and ensure that you do not have any further questions.
