Treatment of Scarring to Overcome Psychological Pressure

Usually the patient’s skin will look red and sore for several months after they undergo this procedure before the results are seen.
The second is subcision which is usually done to overcome the scar tissue. In the process, the doctor will remove the outer layer of skin along with scar tissue beneath it. This separation will result in clumped blood in the area and form connective tissue. This connective tissue will flatten scar tissue with other skin surfaces. For a more perfect result, doctors will usually perform laser treatment or surgical dermabrasion after completion of subcision procedures.
Next is laser treatment. This procedure can be used to treat mild to moderate acne scars. Laser treatment is divided into two, namely ablative and nonlative laser treatment.
In ablative procedures, the laser is used to remove a small part of the skin around the wound tissue to produce a new, soft-looking skin.

Punch excision is applied to treat scar tissue of ice pick which is still categorized as light. The trick is to get rid of the scars and close them. When cured later, the skin looks smoother and smoother on the area of the surgery.
