Types of Post-Surgery Scar Treatments

Each type of post-surgery scar has a cosmetic procedure that will treat it the best. Dr. Tzu will identify the best cosmetic treatment for your unique scar. Below are three of the most common types postoperative scar treatments we offer in NYC.

Scar Revision Surgery

While it may seem counterintuitive to have another surgery to fix a scar caused by a previous operation, surgical scar revision is the most traditional and effective cosmetic treatment for reducing the appearance of scars. This type of postoperative scar removal in NYC can help remove or blend scar tissue and improve texture.

Scar revision surgery involves removing scar tissue, repositioning the scar, and smoothing the skin through a surgical procedure. If the scar is causing you pain, this cosmetic procedure can also correct tissue contraction to help increase mobility in the treated area. Following your cosmetic procedure, you can expect recovery to take around one to two weeks.

Dr. Tzu received fellowship training at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, one of the world’s largest and most prestigious dermatology skin surgery centers. She also has over a decade of experience in skin surgery and reconstruction. You can trust that scar revision surgery at Wall Street Dermatology will greatly improve the appearance of your postoperative scar.


Microneedling is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that promotes collagen production and skin healing. This non-invasive postoperative scar treatment involves puncturing the skin with “micro” needles. These tiny wounds stimulate the body’s healing process, which will fill in scars. This type of post-surgery scar removal can help with discoloration and texture for a smooth, clear appearance.

There are different settings for the microneedles, so you can choose how aggressive you want to treat the scars. Additionally, you may need multiple microneedling treatment sessions to reach your desired results. Following your cosmetic treatment, your skin will turn red and become tender, but this will resolve in around 24 hours.

Laser Treatment

Laser scar treatment is another type of post-surgical scar removal in NYC. This cosmetic treatment is similar to microneedling in the way that it penetrates the layers of skin to promote new skin cell growth. Lasers remove the damaged skin cells and target blood vessels in scar tissue which smooths and reduces the appearance of scars.

Different types of lasers have unique wavelengths of light and target different skin structures. You could opt for the pulsed dye laser for surgical scars, which treats red, early-stage scars, or the non-ablative fractional laser for older, white scars.

You may need multiple laser scar treatments to reach your desired results. Recovery time from this cosmetic procedure takes around 3-10 days for the skin to heal.
