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.

Types of lasers for scar treatment

There are a number of different lasers that can be used for scar treatment. The type of laser used will depend on the size, depth, and location of the scar. Some of the most common lasers used for scar treatment include:

Carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers: CO2 lasers are often used for deep scars. They produce a high-energy beam that can penetrate deep into the skin.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPLs): IPL laser therapy does not only reduces the visibility of the scar but also relieves pain or sensitivity. Discolourations are safely and effectively reduced, leaving you with more evenly toned skin.
