Is scar removal appropriate for dark pigmented scars?

Often, the patients note that they have scars from a previous procedure or trauma and there are varying types of scars that can be improved with scar revision procedures.  One of the most common types of scar is a pigmented or darkened scar on the skin.  In most cases, hyperpigmented and darken scars are the most straightforward types of scars that can be improved without surgery.

Hyperpigmented scars are caused by increased activity of the melanocyte or pigment cell within the skin.  Upon stimulation of pigment cell during the wound healing phase after incision is made, the melanocyte begins to deposit increased amount of melanin causing the skin to darken.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon and an expert in pigmentation and scar revision.  During your consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian, he will advise you on various scar revision techniques in order to improve darken scars.  Most dark scars will not require surgery, rather, a topical skin care protocol will be recommended in order to reduce pigmentation and lighten the scar.
