Every time the skin suffers an injury, it runs the risk of healing with a scar. Scars can vary wildly in appearance, ranging from light, silvery-coloured lines on the skin to prominently raised keloid scarring.
Most of us have scars, but for some of us, it can be more of an issue than for others. Those who have scars that they wish to conceal may find that they suffer from low self-esteem, and are restricted in their clothing options in order to hide unsightly areas of scarring.
On occasion, scarring is not simply a cosmetic concern and may be uncomfortable, itchy, or constrictive to movement, driving patients to seek to remove them.
There are many ways scars can be treated. For example, some acne scars can be treated using laser peels while another type may need a different treatment option. That is why we have a dedicated scar clinic to help patients suffering from scarring find a suitable treatment option.
