Scar revision services for keloid, surgical, traumatic, self-harm, and acne scarring
Patients with scarring on the skin may feel self-conscious about their appearance. Certain scars, such as keloid scars, can be extremely large and noticeable, making patients feel less confident in how they appear to others. Other types of scars, such as those from past self-harm experiences, can bring about emotional reminders of hard times.
When patients in the Hamilton, Ontario area visit Dr. Rahul Shukla and his team at drs skincare, they can learn about facial scar removal surgery or light- and laser-based alternatives. By evaluating the scarring present and talking to a patient about their needs, our team can recommend the best course of action to address the issue in the most affordable, conservative, and respectful way.

Most commonly, the scars we see in our office most often are secondary to the following scenarios:
Being part of the transformation that occurs after a scar improves is very rewarding for our team here at drs skincare. It is a primary focus for treating those who come into our office seeking facial scar removal surgery or plastic surgery for visible scars.
What can I expect at my initial visit at drs skincare?
During the initial consultation appointment, we customize a treatment plan by assessing a patient’s scar and selecting the treatment modalities that will best minimize the appearance and discomfort caused by the scar.
In many cases, we use a combination of specialized energy devices such as lasers – fractional CO2 (eCO2), Fraxel laser, vascular laser (Excel v Plus Laser), Picosure pro laser – microneedling +/- radiofrequency microneedling (Morpheus8), prescription therapy and skin care.
