Scar Care Treatment in McAllen, TX

*Model. Not an actual patient.

As some of our procedures involve incisions, patients may be curious about the scars remaining after their treatment. RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center takes immediate precautions to reduce scarring, and also offers scar care treatment to residents of McAllen, Brownsville, the Rio Grande Valley, and all of South Texas.

What Kind of Scarring Can Be Expected from Treatment?

Whenever an incision is made, there will be a scar. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we make every effort to make the smallest possible incisions and hide the scars for all surgeries. These scars will vary depending on the procedure, and we will explain the location and size of scars you can expect when you come in for your initial consultation. Immediately after your procedure, we place a protective tape on the incisions to protect the wound and encourage healing. However, scars will continue to mature for about a year after surgery. During this time, there are a number of techniques we use to minimize the visibility of the scar.

What Can I Do to Reduce Scarring?

During the immediate healing period, it is important to avoid submerging the wound in water, as this can lead to infection. This is a two week period during which patients should avoid baths, swimming, and hot tubs. At this point, scars will begin to darken, thicken, and grow redder. This phase of healing will last approximately three to four months. During this time, we recommend placing silicone over the incisions, which is proven to help scars flatten. This will prevent a swollen, rough scar from forming. We also encourage patients to use sunblock to protect the scar. Tanning will trap the darker pigments in the scar, resulting in a scar that is permanently darker and more visible .

What Can I Do to Eliminate Scarring?

After approximately four months, the scar enters the “maturation phase.” At this point, the scar fades and becomes thinner. It is at this time where we can perform additional treatments to eliminate the appearance of a scar. We recommend a laser skin resurfacing treatment using a non-ablative fractional laser. This improves the appearance of the scar while triggering collagen production for further results. Patients may need multiple treatments to achieve their desired results, although no downtime is required for this treatment.

How Much Do Scar Care Treatments Cost?

To determine the cost of your scar care treatment, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at our practice. During your consultation, we will assess your cosmetic goals in order to pursue a treatment plan that matches your unique needs. Then, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your treatment. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we accept a number of payment and financing options, including cash, checks, money orders, major credit cards, and CareCredit® financing. We also offer simple and secure online payment options for the convenience of our patients.
