Common wisdom has told us that scars are often permanent and impossible to remove. However, The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center offers a number of options in order to help treat, lighten, and often remove different types of scars permanently. Lighter scarring may be addressed with treatments that work to reveal healthy new cells and encourage collagen production. Pitted scars (including acne scars) may be treated by using more aggressive laser treatments, such as Fraxel or ActiveFX.
