Scars can be unsightly, and at times even uncomfortable. For these reasons and more, we see a lot of patients at S-Thetics Clinic that are seeking scar removal treatment. There is no “one size fits all” method the treatment of scars; the treatment best suited to you will depend on the type, size and location of the scar. Different types of scarring include:
Keloid Scars – Keloid scars develop as a result of an intense and aggressive healing process, which usually extend beyond the original injury.
Contracture Scars – Contracture scars occur when your skin has been burned. They tighten the skin and can be very deep, sometimes affecting the nerves and muscles.
Hypertrophic Scars – Hypertrophic scars are raised above the skin and red in appearance. They are very similar to keloid scars, but don’t develop beyond the boundary of the original injury.
Acne Scars – If you’ve suffered with severe acne at any time in your past, you are likely to have developed acne scars as a consequence. There are different types of acne scarring, and you can look at our acne scarring condition page for more information.
