About scars

A scar is a mark left on the skin after a wound or injury has finished healing. A scar is the body’s way of repairing itself after an injury. Most wounds, such as cuts and scrapes, will heal without resulting in a scar. But deeper injuries, burns, surgery, and certain skin conditions can lead to unsightly scars.

Different types of scars

Many types of scars form depending on the cause and size of the injury and the individual’s healing factor. Some of them are:

Acne scars

Acne scars are the most common type of scars. They form when acne breakouts aren’t treated properly and are usually small and pitted.

Atrophic scars

Atrophic scars are sunken, depressed scars that can occur due to a loss of collagen. Atrophic scars are caused when the skin is unable to regenerate, producing uneven scarring.

Hypertrophic scars and Keloids

Hypertrophic scars and keloids are raised, thickened scars that can develop after an injury. They are caused by an overgrowth of tissue.

What is Scar Management?

Scar management is the process of preventing or treating scars. It is usually done to improve the appearance of a scar, and can also help to prevent pain, itching, and other symptoms associated with scars. Scar management can involve a variety of treatments, including surgery, chemical peels, fillers, and microdermabrasion.

Who is a good candidate for Scar Management?

Almost anyone who has a scar can benefit from scar management. However, some people may be more likely to benefit than others. People who are good candidates for scar management include those who have:

  • Unsightly scars
  • Scars that cause pain or itch
  • Scars that limit movement
  • New scars

People who have keloids or hypertrophic scars are also good candidates for scar management, but they may require more aggressive treatment.

What to expect at the consultation for Scar Management?

At the consultation for scar management, Dr. Sudhakar Prasad will examine your scar and ask about how it was formed. The doctor may also ask about your medical history and what you hope to achieve with treatment. Dr. Sudhakar will then develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.

What are the different techniques for Scar Management?

There are a variety of techniques that can be used for scar management. The type of technique used will depend on the type of scar, the location of the scar, and the patient’s preferences.

Some common techniques used for scar management include:

Scar revision surgery

Scar revision surgery is a type of surgery that is used to improve the appearance of a scar. It can be used to remove a scar, reduce its size, or change its shape.

Chemical peels

A chemical peel is a type of treatment that uses a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin. The new outer layer of skin that replaces it is usually smoother and less irregular. This is how chemical peels can be used to reduce the appearance of scars.

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy

In PRP therapy or platelet-rich plasma therapy, a small sample of blood is taken from the patient. The platelets in the blood are then separated and injected into the scar tissue. This helps to stimulate collagen production, which can improve the appearance of scars.


Microneedling is a technique in which tiny needles are used to create microscopic injuries in the skin. This activates the body’s natural healing process, resulting in new elastin and collagen production. It is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that may be used to minimize the appearance of scars.


Microdermabrasion is used to improve the tone and texture of the skin. In this procedure, a mildly abrasive device is used to gently remove the dead cells or thick outer layer of the skin. This can help to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce scarring.


In fillers treatment for scar management, collagen fillers or hyaluronic acid fillers are used to fill in the depressions in the skin caused by scars. This can help to improve the appearance of the scars and make them less noticeable.

How is the recovery after Scar Management?

The recovery after scar management varies depending on the type of treatment.

After scar revision surgery, you will usually need to take time off from work or school to recover. The length of time needed for recovery depends on the extent of scar revision surgery and how well you heal.

After chemical peels, microneedling, and microdermabrasion, you may have some mild redness and swelling for a few days.

After fillers, you may have some mild bruising or swelling for a few days.

You should avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen after any of these treatments to prevent new scars from forming.

How much does Scar Management cost in Hyderabad?

The cost of scar management varies depending on the type of treatment, and the size and location of the scar. During the consultation, Dr. Sudhakar will go over the entire scar management cost with you and all of the various factors that influence it.
