Can an ice pick scar be treated with a punch excision?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 28 November 2012


I have a single (what I believe to be) deep ice pick scar on my cheek. It came after a nasty spot, so ice pick seems most likely.

Do you feel a punch excision would work here?

Also what is the likely cost of such a procedure?


It may be preferable to discuss this type of question with a dermatologist, but overall I believe there is a good chance of success in making the scar less visible.

You have to be realistic though regarding the fact that the the scar will not be made invisible by such treatment.
