Scar Revision for Men in NYC

What is Scar Revision?

To answer “What is scar revision”, you need to first understand that scars are the body’s natural path to healing deep wounds. For men in NYC, however, scar revision can be a path toward improved self-esteem and self-image. More common than you might think, most people will experience some form of physical scarring during their lifetime. Simply put, scarring occurs when a lower layer of skin is wounded. In order to heal, your body generates collagen fibers such as structural proteins to repair the skin. What remains once this healing process has subsided, is an imperfection in the skin–a scar.

While our bodies certainly possess the ability to repair skin injuries, scarring can be damaging to one’s self-confidence. At Male Plastic Surgery in NYC, Dr. Steinbrech and his team specialize in scar revision and the male anatomy. At our Manhattan practice, we employ a variety of treatments to help remove or fade scars safely and without the need for surgery. From laser treatments to scar gel, we offer global care to treat scarring from every angle. If you feel as though scarring is holding back your look, please contact our team for an assessment.

What Types of Scars Can Be Removed?

Stretched Scarring

This type of scarring occurs when the skin is expanded–particularly in a short amount of time. In men, this typically happens during growth spurts, increased muscle mass, or rapid weight gain.

Keloid Scarring

These scars are present when a man’s body produces too much collagen during healing. In particular, keloid (or hypertrophic) scars are raised imperfections.

Sunken Scarring

A sort of opposite to hypertrophic scarring, sunken scars are those that have impeded your body’s structural support such as muscle.

How Does Scar Revision Work?

At our flagship practice in NYC, we offer several avenues to treat scarring. Oftentimes, these treatments can/may be used in conjunction with one another. Depending on each unique case, our staff will help you find which procedure(s) is right for you.

Laser Genesis Scar Revision

Classified as an Nd: YAG 1064mm laser, Laser Genesis penetrates the middle layer of the skin without damaging or burning it. Using a series of pain-free micro-pulses, it distributes light evenly throughout the target area. The Nd: YAG laser heats the blood vessels, prompting your body to break down scar tissue and create new skin cells.

Fractora Laser Scar Revision

The Fractora Laser is a new, deep-penetrating fractional laser that fights imperfections such as scarring. This laser employs controlled pulses of RF energy which resurface the outer layer of the skin using a series of micro-pins.  It can also be used for skin rejuvenation and tightening.

Dimisil™ Scar Gel

Dimisil™ Scar Gel is a topical cream formulated by Alpha Aesthetics for Keloid Scars and Hypertrophic Scars. These include scarring from the trauma of the skin by surgery, burns, abrasions, or lacerations.

Chemical Peels

While chemical peels can be less of a direct approach to treating scarring, they can brighten the skin while helping your body fade any facial scars. Ask our team about chemical peels for men.
