Scars by piercing

Remove scars by Piercing

At Hoogstra Medical Centers we treat piercing scars with laser technology, which avoids additional scars.

The word piercing comes from the verb "to pierce" which means to pierce, to pierce. Today the practice of piercing has spread to other parts of the body such as the eyebrows, nostrils, navel, lips, tongue and genitals, among others.

Clinical picture

After a time the hole produced begins to epithelize and a fistula is generated, that is, a connection or channel between tissues or organs.

The fistulas do not close spontaneously and when the person removes the decorative element, either because they do not want to use it anymore or because they have an infection or allergic reactions, they have a depressed scar and an unsightly fistula and sometimes an over raised or keloid scar.

Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra uses advanced techniques in plastic and restorative surgery often associated with lasers for the treatment of scars caused by piercing.

The patient can immediately continue his normal life.
