I was in a serious car accident last year and I now have a facial scar that always reminds me of the accident. I am interested in scar revision. How do you do this and how soon will I see results?
I can certainly not blame you for wanting a painful memory erased especially when you are reminded of your injury on a daily basis. Scar revision can be performed as early as six months following your facial injury. I prefer to wait about a year prior to undertaking scar revision. The entire scar revision process can take several months to a year to complete. Depending upon the complexity of the scar and the location of the scar a series of surgical procedures may need to be performed and once surgery has been completed, a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing procedure may also need to be completed to really improve the appearance of the scar.
