Scar Revision

Do you have unsightly scars or keloids? Did your years battling with acne leave you with pock marks all over your face?If so, we have the solution for you. Many people are unaware that advances in technology have made scar treatment a real possibility. If you have scars on your face, don’t be discouraged. We are now able to reliably treat and improve skin that has been severely damaged and scarred.

Acne Scar
Acne scars are divided into several categories, including pitted, rolling and box scars. In the early stages of acne healing, pigmented and vascular scars may form. These may be flat, but have brown or purple shading, making acne look worse than it actually is. Many people have a combination of these. Scars are unsightly and no amount of make-up can cover deep depressions or pitted scars. In order to look good, it is imperative that the skin is returned to a smooth, even surface.
Brown/ purple scars : scar treatment
These form as a result of inflammation during the infection stage of the pimple. First, as a result of the infection and inflammation, the body forms new blood vessels to supply nutrients to the affected area, giving it a purple tinge. Next, after the skin heals, there is an overzealous response by the skin to form pigments, leading to what we call PIH or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
To successfully treat these scars, we employ a low-downtime laser which shrinks the blood vessels and accelerates the breakdown of pigmentation formed during this stage. We also recommend creams which are effective in accelerating healing of the pigmented/ vascular scars.
Depressed scars
To understand how to treat scars, we need to know how they form in the first place. Many depressed scars are formed due to previous inflammation and infection during healing (e.g. a big pimple with pus). Fibrous bands form below these scars in the dermis layer of the skin as a result, and thus distort the surface of the skin, resulting in a depression.
scar treatment In order to successfully treat these scars, it is not enough to have surface treatments like scrubs and dermabrasion, or acid peels, although these are useful to a certain extent. To really treat these scars, we need to get below the surface of the skin and break up these fibrous scar tissue, as well as build new collagen to fill up the depressions, hence making the surface smoother and more even.
Our experience with treating acne scars has been that almost all patients see some improvement after just one session of fractional CO2 laser treatment. Multiple repeated sessions are necessary in order to achieve the optimal result depending on your expectations. Generally, rolling and box scars tend to show the most improvement, and pitted scars take longer to respond.
In some patients with stubborn scars, further treatment options could include needle subcision, or the use of dermal fillers under the scar. We are seeing very good results with dermal fillers, because they do not just reduce the appearance of the scar immediately. In addition, due to the lifting effect of the filler, we manage to see that the fibrous bands holding the scars down are broken and the final result after the filler has worn off is much better than before.
Severe scarring
We make use of the Infini FRF Fractional RadioFrequency treatment to treat severe scarring. Using a fractional approach to delivering RF energy, we are able to treat even deep and craggy scars. The best thing about this is that there is less down time than conventional treatments like dermabrasion.
Keloids and hypertrophic scars
KeloidHave you got a big purple/brown bumpy scar which seems to be growing out of proportion to the original injury? If so, you may be suffering from a keloid or hypertrophic scar.

Frequently Ask Questions


Can the Laser treat all types of scars?.

If you have a scar which you would like to reduce the appearance of you are a perfect candidate for this treatment. The treatment is suitable for treating the appearance of the following types of scars on all skin types and colours:

  • Surgical Scars
  • Post Trauma Scars
  • Skin Graft Scars
  • Tattoo Removal Scars
  • Dark Skin Patches (Melasma)

At this time the laser is unable to treat Dark skin types 5 and 6, due to large amounts of melanin in the skin which will absorb the light and may prevent the fractional laser effectively treating the area. If you are unsure of your colour type please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We would be delighted to go over this with you.


How many Laser treatments do I need to have?

A treatment course of four Laser treatments is recommended for best results. Many patients notice an improvement after only one Laser treatment but for most effective results research shows four Laser treatments are optimum.


How does the laser treatment work?

The Laser treatment takes approximately 30 minutes (the time will depend on the size of the area being treated) and we recommend four weeks between each of your treatments.


What will the area look like post laser treatment?

After the Laser treatment, the area is initially red and swollen. This will reduce over approximately 7 days and the scar reduces in appearance.


Can all skin colour be treated by the Fractional Laser?

The Laser treatment is suitable for most skin types. It is not suitable for dark skins (classified as type 4, 5 or 6 using the Fitzpatrick scale). If you are unsure of your colour type please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We would be delighted to go over this with you.


Is the treatment clinically proven?

The Laser treatment is the first and only fractional laser treatment clinically proven to improve the appearance of scars. It is the only treatment approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of Stretch Marks. Ongoing clinical studies have shown that patients treated achieved an average improvement of between 51% and 75% in the appearance of their Scars.
