Scar Revision Experts
The management of scars begins with a thorough understanding of skin physiology and morphology. Scars can cause changes in the texture, contour, topography, morphology, vibrance, color, and vascularity of the skin; leading to characteristic scar changes that can be addressed with a combination of laser therapy, scar modulation, and surgery. The surgeons at Kare Plastic Surgery + Skin Health Center in Beirut are leading experts in scar management in the United States and in Lebanon. Our center offers the most comprehensive protocols for scar revision available in Lebanon and the Middle East. Schedule a consultation to discuss your options for scar management.
Burn scars usually result from thermal burns or chemical burns on the skin. The depth of injury can determine the amount of scar formation that forms after the initial injury. If you have developed burn scars, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian of Kare Plastic Surgery Beirut can help you find solutions to mitigate your scar and make it less visible.
Options for burn scar treatment depend on the degree of hypertrophy, hyperpigmentation, and hyper-erythema on the skin. Dr. Karamanoukian can help you characterize your scar during your consultation in our clinic. Once identified, the various aspects of your scar can be improved with laser, RF, or plasma therapy.
