Dr. Christopher Verbin utilizes a variety of tools to treat and minimize the appearance of scars. He suggests and carries several silicone based creams and gels — which helps while a scar is forming. He also provides patients with silicone gel sheeting that also minimizes scar appearance if used during the healing process. Additionally, Dr. Verbin utilizes the fractional laser to treat dark and/or thick scars that are old and established, or new and just appearing.

We are also introducing embrace Advanced Scar Therapy. embrace® Advanced Scar Therapy is the first scar management product of its kind. Its patented Active Stress-Shield technology may improve the appearance of scars after surgical procedures, such as a breast augmentation or tummy tuck. Scars are significantly less perceptible when embrace® Advanced Scar Therapy is used after surgery.
Surgery such as an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) results in a scar. The skin’s natural healing process creates tension that causes a scar and scar tissue to form. The scar’s severity depends on the wound’s depth and the amount of scar tissue formed while it heals.
Relieving the tension created during the healing process assists in managing the formation of scars for patients who undergo surgery.
