Scar Revision

Scar Revision in Annapolis, MD with Dr. Sandel

Sandel Duggal Plastic Surgery and MedSpa offer a customized approach to scar revision when your skin is damaged by trauma or surgery. Different factors like the cause of the wound, environment, and your natural healing process will determine our method.

Scar revision can minimize visible scarring after your wound or incision has healed. It employs surgical and non-surgical treatments to help you enjoy smoother, more supple skin by resolving acne scarring, mole removal scars, and surgical scars.

Scar Revision Techniques

There is no one universal technique for scar revision. The choice of procedure might depend on the location of the scar, the depth of the scarring and the timing of the scarring. Depending on your expectations and the extent of the scarring, more than one procedure may be necessary to show maximum improvement.

Here are the procedures we offer:

Medical Microneedling

Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure for scar revision and skin rejuvenation. It promotes collagen and elastin regeneration resulting in more supple, even-toned, and radiant skin. In addition, reforming new capillaries leads to excellent oxygen and nutrient absorption for enhanced skin texture, reduced pore size, fine lines, and age spots. Downtime is minimal.


Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates dead skin cells revealing a fresh, bright skin presence. It is a safe, therapeutic approach to skincare as a standalone therapy. Still, it offers excellent results when combined with other treatments. Microdermabrasion is recommended to effectively resolve a range of cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Scarring

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing employs controlled laser light to soften scarring.

Different lasers treat different skin complexions and problems. For example, ablative laser treatments take off the top layer of skin to reveal a new skin layer. Non-ablative treatments offer a gentler approach to treating skin discoloration and stimulating new skin growth.

Cosmetic Surgery

Scar revision may involve eradicating the scar tissue and forming a flap of healthy skin over the old scar area. Sometimes a skin graft may be required. Z-plasty is an option to move a scar to a natural skin fold or crease.

Swelling, bruising, and redness are expected after the surgery, and you may experience minimal discomfort. We will discuss a regimen of activity and care procedures you must follow during recovery.
