By the time we reach our adult years, our skin has been exposed to environmental damage, acne, chicken pox, scrapes, burns and numerous other phenomena. As part of the skin's natural healing process, a scar is formed when several layers of the skin have been damaged. Presently, there are diverse treatment modalities available to address various forms of skin scarring. These treatments can dramatically reverse, improve, and renew your skin to its natural, healthier state. Many seek solutions not only to achieve healthy-looking skin, but also to improve their image and self esteem.
What are the treatment options?
Today, there are many treatment options which, when properly chosen for the specific type of scar and/or skin type, can greatly improve and repair your skin to its natural and more healthy state. These Treatment options include:
- Surgical excision
- Laser skin resurfacing
- Laser skin rejuvenation
- Intense pulsed light skin rejuvenation
- Chemical peels
- Cortisone injections
Which treatment is best for me?
During your consultation, your skin type and scar will be evaluated and a customised treatment program will be developed. This may include a combination of treatments to optimise your results. In some cases, certain types of scars can only be improved and not completely eliminated. Your treatment expectations and results will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation.
