When the skin is wounded and tissue is removed, it can leave an atrophic scar. These scars are indented and pockmarks from chicken pox or acne are examples of atrophic scarring. The wound heals, but not enough tissue is created to restore an even surface. Atrophic scars can leave the skin permanently damaged without treatment. LM Medical NYC offers effective treatments for atrophic scar removal at our clinic in Manhattan.

Most atrophic scars are caused by skin growths or infections. Viruses, moles, acne and other skin conditions can leave behind indented scars once the skin heals. There are different levels of atrophic scarring, from small icepick holes in the skin to boxcar and rolling scars that are larger and deeper. Instead of fading or “removing” atrophic scars, they need to be filled or smoothed by cosmetic treatments or surgery.

Smoothing Indented Scars

There are several treatments that can be used for improving the appearance of atrophic scarring. Dr. Lesley Rabach is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, and Dr. Morgan Rabach is a board certified dermatologist; both can offer treatments for skin damaged by atrophic scarring. At LM Medical NYC, we offer both non-invasive treatments and facial plastic surgery options for scar revision and removal including:

  • Chemical peels
  • CO2 laser skin resurfacing
  • Dermal filler injections (Bellafill®)
  • Microneedling
  • Scar revision plastic surgery

The goal of atrophic scar removal treatments is to achieve a smoother appearance to the skin. This can include removal of damaged skin cells and collagen induction for healing. Multiple treatments may be combined to achieve the desired effect.

If you have atrophic scarring that has left indents in your skin, there are cosmetic treatments that can improve the appearance of these skin imperfections. Contact us at LM Medical NYC to schedule a scar removal consultation with Dr. Morgan, our expert dermatologist, or Dr. Lesley, our talented plastic surgeon, at our clinic in Greenwich Village.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Stacy A.

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
