Dr. Jeffrey Ellis, Dermatologist in Plainview Long Island discusses scars and treatment options in Newsday Article, February 8, 2011.
Scars form in different ways and develop from different causes. Acne, burns, surgery, trauma or even tattoos and body piercings can result in scars. Some scars are depressed (ie: acne scars) while others are raised (ie: keloids). There are many options available for our patients with scarring, and we offer some unique and specialized techniques to help improve your scar. For example, we find micro needling to be a cost effective and helpful treatment option for depressed acne scars. For keloids on the ears, we utilize radio- surgery to meticulously remove scar tissue. More information about that procedure can be found here.
If you have a scar, or think you are developing one please schedule an appointment with us so that we can help you to heal in the best way possible.
