Minimize the Appearance of Scars, Wounds and Burns
Scarring can occur anytime the skin is compromised such as with an injury, burn or surgery. The healing process is individualized, so as the formation of the scar. Moreover, the scaring on different parts of the body in the same individual can vary. Whether the healing process of compromised skin will end up with an unnoticeable or noticeable scar, keloid or a hypertrophic scar, there are many variables that lead to the final result including the part of the body, pigmentation, depth, type of injury, movement of the body part, and time to heal. Dr. Shteynberg has seen many variations of healing during his training at Long Island Plastic Surgery Group in plastic and reconstructive surgery and working with difficult wounds and burns. His extensive affiliations with various hospitals throughout NYC allow him to see and treat a wide variety of scars, wounds and burns firsthand.
