Improve the appearance of your scars
Scarring can occur through acne, accidents, illness or surgery and your life can be seriously affected. At Discover Laser we understand the difficulty of living with scars, and the low self esteem and loss of confidence experienced as a result.
Regain your confidence with effective treatment from our expert cosmetic doctor
New therapies offer real hope to patients with scarring as it now possible to start a repair process that leads to smoother, flatter and more even surface. Our experienced Aesthetic Doctors use the very best clinically proven treatments to improve the appearance of scars.
Acne Scars are commonly atrophic scars (sometimes called ice pick and box scar) and are characterised by being indented or sunken in the skin.
Keloid Scars are scars where the excessive growth of the repaired tissue grows outside of the boundaries of the original wound and are raised, red and unsightly. The commonest areas for keloid scars are on the front of the chest and over the shoulders but they can occur anywhere. They are also more common in people with very dark skin.
Hypertrophic Scars are scars that form within the boundaries of the original injury, raised above the skin surface – but not in excess as in keloid scars.
Atrophic Scars are where the scar tissue is indented or sunken away from the level of the normal skin surrounding it.
A course of 3-6 treatments (depending on scar depth and complexity) results in smoother softer skin, improved clarity and more even skin tone.
Dermal filler injections add volume immediately and safely to indented scars. We use Belotero®, Ellanse® and Sculptra® which have FDA approval and an outstanding safety profile.
The appearance of scars can be greatly reduced by 6-8 laser treatments.
NeoGen uses plasma, a modern energy source that gives birth to new skin. This deep tissue treatment has been clinically proven to regenerate the skin and significantly improves scars.
Plexr® treatment uses plasma energy to vaporise pin-prick size areas of scar tissue causing it to shrink. It delivers its energy only on the superficial skin cells, without affecting deeper tissues and is very low risk and has minimal side effects.
