A scar is a mark left on the skin following trauma. It is the fibrous tissue built by the body in a biological process of wound healing. While some scars are considered ‘badges of honor’ others can make people self-conscious. If you have scars that are noticeable, widespread (such as acne scars), large, or raised, there are a number of methods to reduce their appearance.

At Aspen Mountain Dermatology, we can discuss the use of topical medications or creams, and injections to help make scars less painful or apparent.
