Cigarette burns are becoming more and more rare.  If you have one, or many, we can simply lighten them with Melaquin AM and MelaPeel, use IPL; or surgically remove them or resurface them.  Many options are available.

Burns are usually treated with scar removal surgery using a skin flap, or graft and tissue expansion but can also be treated now with a biological skin revival cream. Talk to your doctor about what procedure is right for you
