What Is Non-Surgical Scar Treatment?
Scars resulting from previous surgery or trauma can be unsightly and even painful. They can also blemish your self-confidence and mental well-being as well as leave a mark on your social and professional life.
Using a combination of injectables and laser therapies, Dr. Cabin can reduce the visibility and discomfort of your scars—regardless of how long you’ve had them.
Non-surgical scar treatment offers you a way to address scars without the need for invasive procedures. Dr. Cabin designs these treatments to minimize the appearance of scars—whether they’re the result of surgery, injury, or other skin conditions.
Using advanced techniques and his expertise in facial rejuvenation, Dr. Cabin uses non-surgical scar treatments to improve the texture, color, and overall visibility of your scars—and to help you regain your confidence as a result.
How Scar Treatment Works
During your initial consultation, Dr. Cabin will review your medical history, examine your scars, and discuss your goals and concerns. Then, he’ll design a customized treatment plan to reduce your scarring using one or a combination of the treatments below:
Laser treatments work by targeting the scar tissue with controlled beams of light, stimulating collagen production and promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells. This helps to fade the scar and improve its texture.
Dr. Cabin may also use injectable treatments—such as corticosteroids or dermal fillers—to help flatten your raised scars and/or add volume to areas that have lost tissue.
Dr. Cabin will tailor these treatments to the specific type and location of your scar to ensure you get a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs.

- Visible Scarring: If you have scars that are visible on your face or body and are affecting your self-image, non-surgical scar treatments can help reduce their appearance.
- Different Scar Types: Non-surgical treatments can address various types of scars, such as raised scars, depressed scars, or discolored scars.

Scar Treatment Recovery
After undergoing non-surgical scar treatment, you can expect a relatively straightforward recovery process. Depending on the specific treatment used, you might experience some mild redness, swelling, or discomfort at the treatment site. However, these effects are generally temporary and subside within a few days.
Over the following weeks, you'll notice gradual improvements in the appearance of your scars. The treated area will begin to blend more naturally with the surrounding skin, and the scar's visibility will diminish. It's important to follow any aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Cabin to ensure the best possible outcome.
While non-surgical scar treatments can significantly enhance the appearance of scars, it's essential to have realistic expectations. Complete scar removal is often not possible, but these treatments can lead to a noticeable reduction in scar visibility. Your results will vary depending on the severity of the scar, your skin's response to treatment, and other individual factors.
