Scars

Scars can occur from many types of injury to the skin. Although nothing can restore the skin to its original perfection, there are many techniques available to soften the appearance of scarring. In addition, treatments can be given to reduce the itch, pain and tightness that can be associated with some scars.

TREATMENT & CARE FOR SCARS

Your dermatologist will assess your scars to determine the appropriate treatment, which may include:

  • Acne scars - injections, needling techniques or lasers may be used to improve acne scarring.
  • Keloid or hypertrophic scars - these disfiguring raised scars can be treated with steroid injections to soften and flatten. Picosecond or vascular lasers can be used during the same session to target the red/brown discolouration and soften further. In patients with earlobe keloids, CO2 laser and steroid injections can be used in combination to improve its appearance.
  • Depressed scars - fractional laser resurfacing in combination with injectables can be used to improve the appearance of depressed scars.
  • Post surgical scars - early treatment of post surgical scars are now recommended, and these may include a combination of silicone gels, lasers and steroid injections.
