OMAHA SCAR TREATMENTS
Almost everyone experiences some type of scarring over their lifetime. Some people want their scars removed for aesthetic reasons, while others seek treatment due to the discomfort their scars cause. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for scar treatment. That is why our certified dermatologists at MOD Dermatology of Omaha will create a unique scar treatment plan designed specifically for you. We utilize evidence-based treatments to ensure you receive the best treatment possible for your scars.
WHAT IS SCARRING?
A scar forms on your body when your skin is injured deeper than the first layer of skin. Your body’s natural reaction is to create tissue, known as scar tissue, which is thicker than your normal skin. Scars are largely made up of a protein called collagen.
The Different Types of scars:
There are several different types of scars including flat scars, raised scars, depressed scars, keloid scars, and contracture scars. Your dermatologist will evaluate the type of scar you have, and create a specific plan to treat it.
The type of treatment that will work best depends on the type and severity of your scar. Our certified dermatologists have years of experience working with our clients to reduce the appearance of their scars. Among the most typical treatments include minor surgery, laser therapy, topical solutions, microneedling, and chemical peels.

COMMON SCAR MISCONCEPTIONS
1. All scars fade over time.
Certain types of scars, including keloids and hypertrophic scars, are not known to fade without the help of specialized treatment.
2. Over-the-counter scar creams work just as well as prescribed medication.
Depending on the type of scar and the severity, over-the-counter treatments might not be effective enough to reduce the appearance of the scar.
3. Tanning will help reduce the appearance of scars.
While you might think that tanning will make your scar darker and blend in with the other skin, scars are photosensitive and can be damaged more by UV rays.
