What is it?
Scars are formed after an injury or surgical incision disrupts the integrity of the skin. The resultant healing process leads to an excessive formation of abnormal collagen known as scar tissue. Some people are prone to keloid scarring – a condition of excessive scar tissue formation.
Scars are often unsightly and most people would prefer their scars to be unoticeable to others.
Treatment of scars to improve their appearance is often best achieved with a combination of treatments. We use a combination of skin needling, Fraxel® laser, carboxy therapy, and steroid injections to decrease scar bulk and improve the appearance.
What areas can be treated?
Any area that has a scar can be treated. Most scars will improve in appearance but they are unlikely to disappear completely.
