Dr. Kwan's Scar Removal Treatment is provided in our offices in New York City, Flushing, and New Jersey, and is based on the following categorization of scars:

Hypertrophic Scarring: This type of scarring can be seen as raised red lumps on the skin. Prime causes of such scars include infection, poorly closed wound or tension. Since hypertrophic scars do not spread to areas outside the original wound, their appearance is more likely to improve with time.

Keloid Scars are of a more serious nature as they tend to spread out to areas outside the original wound and may evolve into a tumorous growth. Keloid scars take on a thick and large appearance. They are usually redder or darker than the surrounding skin. Keloids may be itchy and / or painful. They may have irregular borders and appear shiny or dull. Not everyone is prone to the development of keloid scars, which often appear on areas where there is little underlying fatty tissue. Those who do develop this type of scar benefit greatly from precision removal, which facilitates both emotional and physical wellbeing.

What our patients say


I had a reconstructive open nose surgery and ten days later scars are nowhere to be seen. If I had not seen the threads I would not have believed it was an open surgery. I am very happy with the outcome. He did exactly what I had asked and even better! Dr Kwan is not talkative, but I was looking for a doctor who I can trust and not someone who promises the mountains and delivers nothing - as it had happened with another doctor in the past. I had good feelings for Dr. Kwan and I am glad I was right about him.

Widespread Scars: This category of scars is most commonly found in "moving" areas of the body such as the arms and legs.

Through the Scar Removal Treatment, Dr. Kwan carefully removes excess scar tissues and reduces the visibility of the scar. With his expert judgment, Dr. Kwan may recommend injection of steroids or application of a silicone (silastic) gel to flatten the scar.

There is no need for you to live with a scarred personality and confidence simply because your appearance is scarred. A single sitting with Dr. Kwan will help you realize how his unmatched track record can help you realize all your aesthetic dreams and expectations.
