What Is Scar Revision?
Scar revision can refer to any non-surgical or surgical treatment to minimize or improve the appearance of a scar on the face or body. Scar revision can dramatically improve the appearance of a scar to improve self-esteem, correct disfigurement, or improve function to an area affected by a scar from a wound, injury, or previous surgery.
Scar revision can minimize the appearance of a scar in several ways, depending on the treatment method:
- Remove or reduce scar pigmentation
- Move the scar to a different location or hide it within a natural crease
- Flatten a raised or keloid scar
- Raise and flatten a depressed scar such as icepick acne scar

How Is Laser Scar Revision Performed?
At Bawa Medical, we perform scar revision using advanced elōs Plus® laser technology. The Sublative RF applicator on the elōs Plus® system uses radiofrequency energy delivered through electrode pins on the handpiece to thermally ablate the dermis and epidermis levels of the treatment area.
Over a period of weeks, the body responds to this ablation or damage by engaging the natural healing response and boosting collagen production. This helps fade the appearance of scars and build the framework of the skin below the scar to address a sunken or depressed scar, including stretch marks.
We offer laser scar revision as a non-invasive alternative to scar revision surgery, which can often come with longer recovery times and required downtime.
What Is Recovery Like After Scar Revision in Boca Raton?
elōs Plus® scar revision in Boca Raton is a non-invasive solution that requires no downtime or recovery process. The most important thing to remember is you must avoid sun exposure for one month after your procedure and, ideally, about two weeks before elōs Plus® laser treatment.
The number of treatments necessary for scar revision depends on the type and severity of the scar. You will likely notice some improvement in the appearance of your scar a few weeks after treatment. Several treatments may be recommended about four to six weeks apart.
