The cuts that occur as a result of a surgical procedure or accident on our body, whether they are stitched or healed on their own during the healing phase, will definitely heal with a scar. It is the result of the skin's healing response after injury. If these incisions heal on their own, the scars that will remain are much more obvious. But if the incision is closed properly in the early period with sutures, and if the wound is properly cared for, the scars heal in a minimal or even invisible manner.


Scars are the causes of complaints such as disrupting the aesthetics of the person's appearance, reminding them of unwanted memories, and often itching-swelling. For this reason, both for treatment purposes and to provide aesthetics, treatments always have an important place in terms of plastic surgery.
The goal of technological applications that develop day by day in the treatment of scars that may occur due to accidents, burns, previous surgical procedures or traumas in one's own body is to make the scar the most uncertain.

The treatment of the scar depends on many factors such as the form of the scar, the time of its formation, the type of the injuring tool, the treatment applied after the injury, the reaction of the person's body to the wound. The protocols in scar treatment vary depending on these factors. The goal of the art of plastic surgery is to make the scar the least obscure. While various researches are going on on this subject, we plastic surgeons aim to hide the scars and achieve the most aesthetic result possible in the operations we perform. However, the healing traces of some wounds after emergency surgical events, accidents, untreated sharp instrument injuries such as knives, glass, blades and razors are not really acceptable. In treatment, we try to make these scars more obscure.

The timing of the treatments is also planned according to the condition of the wound and the patient. In some wounds, treatment can be started immediately, while in some wound maturation, an average of 6 months can be waited. This decision should be made by the physician who examined you.


This is one of the most common questions we get. The most important factor determining scarring is genetics. For example, while the scars heal more fluffy and clearly in dark and oily skin, individuals with dry, finely wrinkled and pale skin leave less scars, and this scar is often not visible from afar.

Another factor that determines the scar is the localization of the wound. While scarring is evident on the back or chest in the midline, scarring in areas such as the eyelids is often not obvious when viewed from afar.

Tension in the wound is another factor that determines scarring. In wrinkled skin, scarring is less obvious, for example, in the elderly, the elasticity of the skin is reduced and therefore the skin becomes wrinkled. It leaves less scarring in elderly patients. However, scarring is evident on taut skin, for example, in children, the skin is elastic and tight, the wound heals quickly, but the scar may redden and expand. And the scar expands with the growth of the body in children, so it is necessary to pay attention to the scars on the scalp in children.

The direction of the scar is also important. For example, incisions parallel to the tension created by the facial muscles leave less scars.

Surgical Technique also has an important place. It is necessary to use subcutaneous suture materials that will reduce the tension in the scar by using suture materials that will not create a suture mark on the wound.


The treatment of the scar can be carried out in different ways, but the desired result is not always obtained. Laser scar treatment can treat scars from both surgery and other causes. Thus, there is no need to hide the scars by having the appearance of the old skin tissue.

In order to heal the scars in laser treatment, the damaged tissue must be repaired first. After peeling on the skin, the skin in the lower layer rises to the top and the scar usually disappears completely. Since the person has his own skin, problems such as color differences do not occur. No difference can be seen when compared to the state before the scar.

Laser surgical scar treatment can be applied in different regions, for all age groups and genders. After full recovery, there is no such thing as the appearance of scars again. After the whole process is completed, it does not harm people's health in other ways by creating side effects.

Laser treatment is not only for surgical scars. It can be applied on the scars left after chickenpox, burn scars, acne scars, razor scars, ingrown hairs. In short, laser treatment can be performed on all visible scars that cause discomfort on the body.


What are the most common types of scars?

However, scars that require emergency surgery, accidents, stabbings, glass and razor blade cuts, long-lasting wounds and after surgical operations are the most common conditions.

When can scar correction be performed in trauma, incision and post-operative situations?

Although the timing varies according to the condition of the patient and the wound, 6 months-1 year is usually expected for correction operations. In this process, the wound matures and takes its final shape.

What Should Be Done to Make Scar Treatment Easy?

In order for scar treatment to be easy, there are important points to be considered when you are at the wound stage. After the wound is formed, the person must make regular dressings. In addition, it is expected that the person will create a moisture environment and a bacteria-free area in a waterproof way. If these are taken care of when they are still in the wound stage, scar treatment will be handled in a shorter time and more easily. Thanks to these methods, which also reduce the infection of the open wound, the level of scarring is also significantly reduced. Stitches must be removed on time. If your doctor tells you which day the stitches should be removed, it is useful to be ready that day. Because when the stitches stay longer than planned, there may be a reaction on the skin.

With Which Methods Is Scar Treatment Performed?

The methods of scar treatment vary. You can choose from different options depending on the result you want to achieve and the situation of the person. The most preferred treatment methods can be listed as follows:

  • PRP treatment,

  • local steroid therapy,

  • printing treatment,

  • laser therapy,

  • It is possible to get rid of scars with surgical treatment methods.

If surgical treatment methods are to be applied, there are scars that heal poorly. Through the surgical procedure, the wound is removed from the area and sutured again. The re-healing process is thus activated. The physician takes protective measures in this method. It is very important that these precautions are followed by the patient.

Is Scar Treatment Done with Dermapen?

Scar treatment with Dermapen can give successful results. When the tool called Dermapen is used, small wounds are formed on the skin surface in a controlled manner. This ensures the restructuring of the skin. Small needles are used during application. These needles do not cause pain on the skin. The procedure is performed after the area is anesthetized beforehand. When scar treatment is done with dermapen, the skin tries to repair itself. As it tries to repair itself, the skin is renewed. In other words, it both eliminates the scar and makes it possible to have a better-looking skin. The skin is rejuvenated, it is also preferred for moisture balance and smoothness.
