The skin forms scars during the healing process following an injury. Often the result of an accident, a burn, a surgical procedure, bacterial infection or pregnancy.
Scarring is a natural part of the healing process, where multiple layers of skin are damaged. When the scar forms, it is permanent. However, they can be made less visible to the naked eye with a variety of modern non-surgical treatments!
Earlier we said that there are many different causes of scarring and various types of scars. Therefore, each injury will need individually treated. To either reduce the appearance or to remove it.
Types Of Scars
Facial Scars, tend to be the most unpopular as they are highly visible to the outside world. Making people feel unattractive, while other scars may affect the movement and facial expressions.
Burns Scars, tend to be more severe due to the extreme damage to the skin. And can be harder to treat, as the skin heals affecting the movement of the muscles and tendons.
Keloid scars form as a result of the body’s overproduction of collagen. The substance that keeps the skin flexible and supple. They tend to appear as crusty raised growths.
Hypertrophic scars are often raised and thick in texture, but unlike keloid scars don’t grow out of the boundaries of the scar area. They can also affect the movement of muscles and tendons.Book Now

- Micro Needling – is a non-ablative skin therapy, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or Derma Roller. The principle behind Micro Needling is simple; it is a non-surgical skin- tightening treatment. That aims to create a controlled injury underneath the skin’s surface. Thereby inducing the body to respond through the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers. As well as new capillaries for improved blood supply in the treated area. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus, ultimately reducing the appearance of acne scarring.
