If you suffer from embarrassing or unsightly scars, you may want to consider scar revision treatments to help improve the appearance of scars that didn’t heal properly following surgery or trauma. Nease Cosmetic Surgery is happy to offer scar revision treatments to men and women in Ft. Payne, Scottsboro, Huntsville and surrounding communities in north Alabama.
What is Scar Treatment?
Scar treatment, often called scar revision, is the process used to minimize the appearance of a scar, making it less conspicuous or unsightly and helping it to better blend into the tone and texture of the skin that surrounds it.
Options for scar revision treatments can range from simple surface treatment to slightly more involved procedures that may be minimally invasive to full-blown surgical procedures using advanced wound closing techniques.
It’s important to note that, while scar revision treatment can provide drastic improvements to the appearance of a scar, the scar can never be totally erased.
How Much Does Scar Treatment Cost in North Alabama and Huntsville area?
Currently, the cost for scar reduction or revision at Nease Cosmetic Surgery is $300 per scar treated. Scar revision treatment costs will vary from one case to another, depending on the extent and complexity of the treatment needed to achieve the desired outcome, as well as other contributing variables that may affect the total cost.
Most insurance companies will not cover the cost of cosmetic procedures. At Nease Cosmetic Surgery, we strive to keep our cosmetic treatments as affordable as possible by offering complimentary consultations along with a variety of payment options, including cash, major credit cards and financing through CareCredit®.

Am I a Good Candidate for Scar Treatment?
Good candidates for scar treatment are healthy adults who don’t smoke or have an active acne outbreak or other skin diseases in the potential treatment area. If this describes you and there’s a scar somewhere on your body that bothers you, you’re probably a good candidate for scar revision treatment.
During the initial consultation, the doctor will help you make sure your expectations are in alignment with what’s possible and if scar revision is your best option to help you achieve your goals. If not, he can help you explore other choices that may serve you better.
What is Scar Treatment Recovery Like?
You may experience some swelling, bruising or discomfort following your scar revision treatment. This can take a week or two to subside. The healing process typically continues for a few weeks, with the new scar slowly refining and eventually fading.
Results are long-lasting, but it could be several months down the road before you see your final results. It can sometimes take up to a year for a new scar to be totally healed and completely fade away. For optimal recovery results, be sure to read and closely follow any post-treatment instructions you may be given following your scar revision procedure.
