There are several skin care treatments that are effective for improving the appearance of scars. Each scar is unique and there may be multiple treatment options.

Our cosmetic providers have the expertise to help you determine the best plan of care to treat your scar and achieve the best results. Treatments offered at USF Health can improve the texture or how the scar feels, as well as the color of the scar. In some cases, laser treatment can begin as soon as the stitches for the wound are removed.
