About Scar Removal

Scar Removal

Scar removal treatment aims to reduce the appearance of scarring which is caused by tears, burning or any other trauma.

Scars form once the skin has healed after the tissue has been damaged. The size of the scar depends on the wound and how it heals. Scars can vary and can include red, bumpy or keloid scars. Keloid scars are often pink or red and are raised bumps which often grow bigger than the actual wound. Keloid scars can become itchy and irritable.

Scar removal treatment is recommended for patients who have unsightly scars. While treatment cannot always completely remove the scar, it can decrease the visibility of the scar.

Scar treatment can include surgery, dermabrasion, corticosteroid injections, laser therapy, skin grafts, radiotherapy, and the application of ointments.

Before Scar Removal abroad

Patients with scarring should consult with a dermatologist and discuss potential treatment options.

How is it performed

Some scarring can be treated with ointments or topical creams.

Laser therapy may performed to treat skin and this can be performed by a dermatologist. The treatment involves applying a laser to the scar which destroys a layer of the skin and the new skin which grows back will be smoother, making the scar less visible.

Dermabrasion is another method used for scar removal, which resurfaces the skin so that new skin can grow back smoother. This is a popular option for acne scarring.

Treatment for keloid or raised scarring uses corticosteroid injections which involves making small injections into the scar in order to flatten it.

Radiotherapy in a low dose, may be used after the surgical removal of keloid scars, in order to prevent the scar from reforming and increasing in size once the wound heals.

For severe and extensive scarring, skin grafts may be used. This treatment involves taking skin from another part of the body and attaching it onto the affected area to improve the look of the skin.

Anesthesia

Usually no anesthetic is needed.

Scar Removal
There are various treatments available such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, steroids, and laser treatment.
