Can you reopen an old scar to close it better?
you for your question. The answer to
your question depends on the scar’s appearance.
Some scars can be re-excised and resutured to achieve a better cosmetic
outcome. Also another option is using
the Fraxel laser to safely remove and resurface the scars on your foot. Laser therapy is an efficient procedure to
improve the tone, texture and color of scars. This is a non-invasive procedure
that has no downtime, which can be used on all skin types. A board certified Dermatologist can determine
the correct laser settings to treat your skin, to avoid the effects of
hyperpigmentation. These treatments are
performed four weeks apart, and optimal results are visible within 6-8
Scars are difficult to treat. The area has very little skin and pulls very easily. Unfortunately there is little to do to revise the scar in this area.
Unfortunately once the skin is incised there is a permanent scar. Incisions on the toes and forefoot are difficult areas to get revision scar improvement under these circumstances.
