Trauma & Surgical Scarring

There aren’t too many people who go through their lives without accumulating a scar or two. Whatever the cause – whether from a traumatic incident or surgery – we have a number of highly effective treatments to help reduce unsightly scars.

The problem

‘Normal’ scars appear after an injury has healed and fade without assistance. However deeper scars can leave unsightly and disfiguring marks and come in a range of forms:

•  Hypertrophic scars – thick, raised and dark in colour.
•  Keloid scars – rubbery, raised and reddened marks that continue to grow over time.
•  Atrophic scars – an indentation or ‘pit’ in the skin – commonly caused by acne.
•  Stretch marks – caused by rapid growth or dramatic fluctuations in weight.
•  Contracture scars – mostly attributed to burn injuries.

The cause

Scars form when the dermis (deep, thick layer of skin) is damaged. The body forms new collagen fibres (a naturally occurring protein in the body) to mend the damage, resulting in a scar. The new scar tissue will have a different texture and quality than the surrounding tissue. Depending on the type of injury, the texture and quality will vary dramatically.

How we can help?

We have seen some fantastic results for clients suffering from scars, but everyone is different. Once we have assessed your scarring, we can recommend the right treatment. Depending on the severity and type of scar you have, a number of treatments may be required. We may also recommend specialised skincare and home treatments such as a Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) home use roller.

The first step

If you’re new to Clear Complexions, we need to conduct an in-depth skin analysis using state-of-the-art imaging software to look beneath your skin; so that we can determine what treatment will deliver you the best results. It only takes 60 minutes and it will set you on the right path for truly healthy skin.
