While scars can never be completed erased, scar removal procedures are meant to minimize their appearance. There are many non-surgical methods used for scar removal, including injectable fillers to fill concave scars, light therapy and lasers, and dermabrasion and chemical peels. For deeper scarring, surgery is needed to remove the old scar. The incision may be closed with either skin grafts or tissue substitutes. In some cases, a tissue expander will be placed below the surface of the scar and slowly filled with a sterile solution. Once the skin has sufficiently been stretched, the expander and scar are removed. The remaining skin is then stretched to cover the open area.

I was in a car accident as a child and needed emergency surgery, which left me with quite a big scar that only got worse as I grew up. It caused a huge indent across my stomach which I hated- I'd be paranoid that people could see it through my clothes and it caused a lot of relationship problems... READ MORE

I fell off of a moving car flat onto some concrete and busted open my chin, chipped my tooth, and sliced some skin on the lower part of my bottom lip. The slice of skin was too large to just remove from my face, but it was too thin to put stitches through, so the ER doctor used a type of glue to... READ MORE

During my teens I got many piercings done and finally after 10 years I am having them removed. Anyone who has had a piercing knows that the holes close up internally but often you are left with what can often be a glaring hole. I had 6 on my face. 4 around the mouth and 2 on my bridge.
