How to remove burns

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

Cigarette burns can be improved with scar revision

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.
