Eyelid scars can result from various causes, including trauma, surgery, or skin conditions. Fortunately, Dr. Kian Eftekhari at Eyelid Center of Utah offers advanced treatments to minimize the appearance of eyelid scars and restore a smoother, more natural eyelid contour.

Causes of Eyelid Scars

Eyelid scars can occur due to several reasons:

  • Trauma: Injuries to the eyelids, such as cuts, lacerations, or burns, can lead to scarring.
  • Surgery: Eyelid surgery, including blepharoplasty or ptosis repair, may result in scar formation.
  • Skin Conditions: Conditions like acne, eczema, or dermatitis can cause scarring on the eyelids.

Eyelid Scar Treatment Options

Dr. Kian Eftekhari offers a range of advanced treatment options to address eyelid scars effectively:

  • Laser Therapy: Laser treatments can target scar tissue, promoting collagen remodeling and reducing scar visibility.
  • Steroid Injections: Corticosteroid injections can help flatten and soften raised or keloid scars on the eyelids.
  • Surgical Revision: In some cases, surgical revision may be necessary to remove or revise prominent or unsightly eyelid scars.
  • Scar Revision Techniques: Dr. Eftekhari employs various scar revision techniques, such as Z-plasty or W-plasty, to improve the appearance of eyelid scars.

Ideal Candidates for Eyelid Scar Treatment

Ideal candidates for eyelid scar treatment are individuals bothered by the appearance of eyelid scars or experiencing functional issues due to scar contracture. During a consultation, Dr. Eftekhari will assess the scar’s characteristics and recommend the most suitable treatment option based on the patient’s needs and goals.

Recovery and Results

Recovery from eyelid scar treatment varies depending on the chosen technique. Laser therapy may require multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart, while surgical revision may involve a longer recovery period. Patients can expect gradual improvement in scar appearance over time, with final results becoming evident in the following months.
