What are scars?

Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin after injury. They are a natural part of the healing process, usually appearing red or pink before fading to a more normal skin tone. Acne, cuts, burns, surgery, or other skin conditions can cause scars.

Several types of scars can form on the skin. Atrophic scars are depressed in appearance and often result from acne or chickenpox. Hypertrophic scars are raised and thickened due to excessive collagen production during the healing process. Keloid scars are similar to hypertrophic scars but extend beyond the original wound area and can cause discomfort due to their size and shape. Contracture scars occur when there is an extensive loss of skin due to burns or other trauma, and they can cause tightness in the affected area.

Scar Removal Treatments

Various treatments are available for reducing the visibility or severity of existing scars.

Microneedling is a procedure that uses a special device to create micro-injuries in the skin on the skin’s surface to trigger the body’s natural healing process. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which can help improve the scars’ appearance.

Chemical peels use a combination of clinically and medically proven ingredients to gently remove dead, damaged and pigmented skin cells in the outer layers of the skin. This exposes new, healthy cells that can receive oxygen and benefit from topical skincare, allowing damaged tissues to repair and rejuvenate

We offer financing options to make our treatments for scar removal affordable for everyone. Please schedule a consultation with Dr Natasha Verma to learn more about our scar treatments. She will assess your scar and recommend the best treatment option for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can muscle relaxing injections help with scar removal?

Most commonly known as an effective anti-wrinkle treatment, muscle-relaxing injections can also remove scars. It works by temporarily restricting the movement of certain muscles, which in turn lessens strain on a scar and helps to reduce its overall appearance. You may experience slight pressure during the injection, but Dr Natasha will use a topical numbing agent to relieve discomfort. Treatment will take around 40 minutes, with minimal downtime. Following treatment, you may see slight swelling or bruising around the injection site, but this should clear itself within a few days. Results usually take 7-10 days to show and can last 3-6 months.

Can you treat all types of scars?

The treatment duration for your scar will depend on various factors, including the type of scar, your skin type, and the age of the scar. Dr. Verma will thoroughly evaluate the scar tissue to develop a precise and tailored treatment plan.

It is important to note that the duration of treatment may vary, as some scars may require more time to respond compared to others. In particular, keloid scars can pose unique challenges and may require additional attention.

However, rest assured that Dr Verma's expertise and experience will guide the treatment process, aiming to achieve the best possible outcome for your scar.

How many sessions do I need to see an improvement?

The treatment approach for your scar is highly individualised, taking into account the specific characteristics of the scar as well as your unique skin type. Dr Verma will thoroughly evaluate your scar and have a detailed discussion with you during your medical skin consultation. This personalised assessment will enable Dr Verma to provide you with a more accurate and tailored treatment plan that addresses your needs. You can feel reassured knowing that Dr Verma's expertise and attention to detail will guide the process, ensuring the most suitable and effective treatment approach for your scar.
