181There are different types of scars that can occur on the face and body.  Most scars are caused by trauma to the skin or surgery.  Specialists classify scars based on their thickness and level of skin discoloration.

Scars can be treated using several effective methods that are chosen based on whether a particular scar is darkened, thickened, or widened.  In our clinic scar revision is performed using the Pulsed Dye Laser, Yag laser, topical creams such as Melaquin PM, subcision surgery, or scar excision and revision. Some deeper scars can be corrected using fat grafting or fillers.

Most of the procedures can be done on day care basis under local anaesthesia.

Acne Scars

The goal of scar treatment for acne scars and depressed scars is to build new collagen at the scar base so that the skin depression can be filled naturally and recontoured.  The stimulation of collagen and elastin is performed through scar subcision, scar surgery, or laser scar revision, all of which stimulate scar fibroblasts to produce collagen in the designated area of scarring.  After the collagen is built, the scar resumes a normal contour and configuration relative to the surrounding tissue.

There are many reasons why patients choose to undergo scar revision.  Scars can occur on any part of the body as a result of trauma, surgery, accidents, and acne.  Scars can be permanent as a result of a violation of the dermis and deeper layers of the subcutaneous tissue.  As a result a scar may develop that influences the overall contour of the soft tissue.  Scar revision techniques include laser, chemical peels, dermabrasion, subcision, or electrodesiccation.
