Scars in San Diego, CA
Scars can often disrupt our appearance and be a reminder of our trauma. With the help of dermatologist, Dr. Faryal Siddiqui, La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic is proud to offer scar treatments to men and women in San Diego, Encinitas, La Mesa, El Cajon, and surrounding areas of California.
What are Scars?
Scars occur as a result of trauma to the skin. Scar tissue typically begins to develop when an abundance of skin cells and collagen work to mend a wound quickly. While scars may develop from traumatic injuries and accidents, they can also develop as a result of skin conditions like acne. Common scars we see at La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic include:
- Keloids are large, raised scars that are often skin-colored or red. These accumulations of scar tissue often cause aesthetic concerns for our patients.
- Hypertrophic scars. These scars may also be raised, but tend to fade over time. Hypertrophic scars are very common.
- Acne scars. These scars are often small indentations in the skin that develop as a result of cystic acne or chronic acne breakouts.
How are Scars Treated?
Because everyone’s body is different, each scar treatment will be tailored to the patient. Treatment for your scars may include laser treatment or light therapy. During your private consultation, Dr. Siddiqui will develop a personalized treatment plan to help you treat your scarring and achieve the beautiful, healthy skin you deserve.
How Much Do Scar Treatments Cost?
The cost of your scar treatments will vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results. La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic accepts coverage from most insurance plans. To get a more accurate estimate of your treatment cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation.
