YW,

Go to www.yellowpages.ca. Do a search for physicians and surgeons. You will get a whole bunch of results. Find some plastic surgeons that live near your place. Call them and ask whether they do scar revision, specifically excision. See if you can book an appointment. Make sure to ask whether the appointment is covered under OHIP. If the scar is on your face, the consultation and the procedure should be covered under OHIP. Some plastic surgeons tried charging me for a consultation - make sure to decline the consultation if they want to charge you.

If your going in for acne its covered by ohip i believe so the consoltations will be free but if you want treatment to scars its considered cosmetic so its coming out of your pocket unfortunetly

No scarring on your face is not covered by ohip.

as for prices for treatments it depends but it aint cheap.

Laser - $3000+

smoothbeam 400.. gonna need 5-6 treatments to get good results

Injections around 600-1000

subsion im not sure its expensive tho..

go in for a free consoltation u got nothing to lose atleast u get a better idea on prices and stuff

YW,

I had excision done on a chicken pox scar last month and it was covered under OHIP.

Just call some plastic surgeons and find out. They will give you an answer. Note that excision may be covered, but other procedures like lasers or fillers will definitely not be covered.
