At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa, we use a combination of cellular therapy, minimally invasive laser therapy, and injections to treat scars. We are equipped to treat all levels and types of scars, including acne scars, keloids, surgical and/or trauma scores, or scars left behind by diseases like chickenpox. The type and level of treatment depend on the depth and severity of the scar and the patient’s desired aesthetic goals. Deep scars may require surgical treatment in combination with non-surgical therapies in order to achieve desired results. During the initial consultation, Dr. Chernoff will review treatment options with the patient and recommend the best treatment plan to help the patient achieve their desired level of improvement.
Common scar treatments include:
- Chemical peels
- Laser resurfacing
- Stem cell therapy

Chemicals peels are also used to treat shallow scars, especially those found on the face. Chemical peels work by gently exfoliating the skin and removing the top layer of skin to reveal a new layer of healthy, fresh skin. Chemical peels can be done in phases for the treatment of deeper scars.
Light energy is concentrated in the treatment area to remove damaged skin one layer at a time. The laser removes the outer layer of skin while the heat from the light energy stimulates collagen production in the deeper layers of skin. This treatment results in improvement in the overall quality and texture of the skin.
This treatment option uses autologous adult stem cells harvested from a patient’s own excess fat. These adult stem cells are injected into the treatment area where they work to repair and regenerate the damaged tissues.
Injectable dermal fillers can be used to temporarily improve the appearance of indented scars by restoring volume to the area.
