Everyone has scars, unfortunately. We have them from accidents, cuts and scrapes, surgeries, burns, etc. There are good scars, which are nearly invisible (ones that are perfectly flat, minimal in size, and close to your normal skin color and texture) and bad scars (ones that are raised or sunken, darker, lighter or more red-pink than your skin color, or stretched open wide). Keloids are especially bad scars that tend to be very thick, puffy and larger than the original wound. Dr. Steele understands that scars can often draw unwanted attention and detract from one’s appearance. At Steele Dermatology, we have developed unique treatment options to dramatically improve the look of your scars, with the goal to make them practically invisible. Visit our Scar Treatment Center for more information about techniques for treating your scars.
Dr. Steele has been successful in treating some of the most challenging scars, i.e. those that have been previously treated without success, on areas of the body with lots of tension, or that have come back after previous treatment. No scar is too difficult—it can always be better, and usually it can be awesome! Making scars go away can require some persistence and patience, however patients are pleased with the end results that they otherwise would have been unable to achieve. Given the specific characteristics of your scar and your history, we will develop a comprehensive plan to make sure your scar is managed with the most advanced treatment options that just aren’t available with all doctors. Dr. Steele operates with the goal of making people notice you, not your scar with long-term results and happy patients.
