Is There a Treatment That Gets Rid of Piercing Scars on the Face?

Evaluation for scar revision

Scar revision might be helpful but without a proper evaulation I can't be sure. There are many treatments for scars and some are more effective than others depending upon the nature of the scar.

Best Regards.

No procedure for removing scars

Unfortunately there is no procedure that I know of that can remove scars. Some treatments can improve scars if they originally did not heal favorably. Some lasers can improve the color and texture.

Not really

Scars can be revised surgically or they can be treated with lasers. There are other things that can be done to make scars better also but no treatment can be done that "gets rid" of scars. They are permanent.

Most piercing scars need to be surgically repaired. At times, less invasive procedures such as fillers or lasers can be effective. One needs to be seen by his or her qualified physician.
