Why might patients consider scar removal treatment in NYC?

Scars may be the result of a wound, surgical procedure, or an injury. Depending on the way the wound heals, it may develop into a very unsightly scar. Some can become extremely obvious and unsightly, especially when they develop on areas of the skin that are exposed. This affects the appearance and self-confidence of those who have them, and may become a source of stress for many individuals who are worried about the way it makes them look.

Treatments for Scars in the New York City Area

There are many methods of scar removal in NYC. Many patients may visit a dermatologist and use topical treatments and creams meant to reduce the color and appearance of the scar, while others may use injections to address them. Others may find that the only way to address their scars is with surgical revision. Patients with scars such as keloid scars, which are extremely visible, may find surgery to be the best method of removal for their concerns. However, patients are warned that even with scar removal, the scar may appear less visible but cannot be completely removed or erased from the skin.

Many patients seek scar removal treatment due to the appearance of the scar and the way it affects their self-esteem. Others with keloid scars may want them removed due to itching and stinging. Anyone who is bothered by a scar on their body may be a viable candidate for scar removal treatment. Patients who have not seen results with other methods such as injectables and topical treatments may resort to surgery.

The best candidates for scar removal treatment are those who live a healthy and active lifestyle, and have realistic expectations for the reduction or removal of the scar.

What our patients say


Dr. Kwan adeptly remedied an excess of my eyelid skin that was originally considered just an aesthetic adjustment. As his work was performed with the utmost efficiency and convenience, it was completely unexpected and so much more amazing to discover that he actually had also relieved me of the constant, annoying rubbing of my previously tired and uncomfortable eyes. Apparently, I had never realized how weary and heavy my eyelids were and just how frequently I used to rub them prior to his quick fix. Now I have the best of both worlds, a younger look, and highly refreshed eyes! Moreover, Dr. Kwan's confident yet comforting approach had me so relaxed prior to committing to something that I was honestly a bit nervous undertaking in the first place.Thank you, Dr. Kwan!
