How we treat scarring

Scars form as a natural part of the body’s healing process following a surgery, accident, a virus such as chicken pox or a skin disease like acne.

There are multiple ways that dermatologists and cosmetic dermatology specialists can minimize the appearance of scars here at Reno Tahoe Dermatology. Scar treatments may include topical applications (creams, ointments), injections of medications such as Kenalog, injections of cosmetic fillers, medical chemical peels such as Vi Peel, microneedling with SkinPen or with the newest laser technology.

Scars are difficult and always assume there is more then one treatment needed with any modality or combination of modalities to achieve the results we want.
