Scar Removal Treatment
Scars are the result of a reduced level of collagen in the Dermis layer of skin. The collagen fibers which were produced in repairing the wound were set off by the trauma occurring in this middle layer. The collagen formation ceased after the wound had healed but before a cosmetic level of repair was achieved.
Our treatment creates a painless microscopic trauma to the same area of skin, promoting additional collagen growth – which gradually stimulates the skin’s return to a normal composition. The area may still be void of hair follicles and sweat glands, but the skin will be thicker, have less pronounced discolouration and will look considerably better.
What it is effectively doing is renewing or extending the healing process which happens naturally within the skin. This extension of this healing process means that the scar tissue repairs itself to a state which has a look and feel which matches the skin around it. Unlike many other scar removal treatments, no cosmetically noticeable damage is caused to the epidermis and the treatment can be continually carried out without concern for additional cost of repeated and expensive clinical visits.

Skin needling, or collagen induction therapy, is a unique process which stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. Using a sterile needle grouping, the technician gently inserts the needle into the epidermis and top layer of the dermis, signalling the brain to send collagen to the injured site for repair. This signal creates an abundance of collagen, thus plumping up the injured area and creating a softer, subtler appearance of wrinkles, acne scars and other depressed areas.
Scar relaxation is the process of releasing the tough, fibrous bands of collagen in contracture, or scarred tissue. A sterile needle grouping is inserted into the dermal layer of tissue, signalling the brain to break down the fibrous bands of collagen in the scar. Results range from softening of the scar’s toughness and texture to increased range of motion. In most successful cases, clients have regained total range of motion, depending on the number of applications and severity of the contracture.
Resurfacing procedures play an important role to scar revision .Chemical peel procedures use a chemical solution to remove damaged outer layers of skin and reveal the smoother, clearer skin beneath. . Chemical peels address these problems by removing the outer layer of skin and revealing a younger-looking skin below.
In general the deeper the peel you have, the better the results.
Laser skin resurfacing uses a specially crafted beam of thermal energy that breaks down and removes only the very outer layers of the area of skin you want to treat. This leaves the skin more even as well as encouraging new skin to grow with a healthier look.
Although the treatment itself is simple and painless, it does require some aftercare. This involves cleaning the skin every few hours for the day after treatment, as well as applying a soothing ointment. The skin can then be left to heal naturally, though it may take a few weeks for the newly exposed skin to regain its full colour.
