Scars can be an unsightly reminder of an injury or surgery. At Baldone Reina Dermatology, we offer scar revision treatments to help patients in Slidell, the Northshore, Covington and New Orleans, LA, achieve smooth, clear skin.
What is Scar Removal/Revision?
Scars are often left behind after surgery, injury and even acne. Although they are harmless, they affect the appearance of the skin by leaving certain areas discolored and rough. Scar removal or scar revision treatments are designed to reduce the appearance of scars and create smoother, clearer skin. At Baldone Reina Dermatology, we offer multiple scar revision techniques, including:
- Laser Skin Resurfacing
- Biocorneum advanced scar treatment gel
Acne scarring is an often overlooked effect of acne. Even after symptoms of acne are treated and eliminated, acne scarring can remain. Fortunately, scar revision techniques can be used for acne scar removal. For most acne scar treatments, we recommend [procedures including microneedling and/or fractional ablative laser treatments with the Fotona Dynamis Laser system]. This treatment gently exfoliates the skin while stimulating collagen production to eliminate acne scars and repair the skin.
How Much Does Scar Removal Cost?
If you choose to pursue scar revision treatment at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this consultation, we will assess your current condition and your treatment goals in order to determine the best approach for your treatment. In some cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. Once these variables are evaluated and your eligibility for insurance coverage is determined, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
What is Acne Scar Removal?

What Can I Expect from Scar Removal Treatments?
Our scar revision techniques are designed to deliver effective results with minimal downtime. Your treatment experience will vary depending on the technique used, but patients can expect a gradual improvement in the appearance of treated scars over the weeks following treatment. We often recommend a series of treatment sessions for optimal results.
