Scar Removal Techniques
The scar is a mark on the skin where a wound, burn, or sore has not healed completely and fibrous connective tissue has developed. In other words, we can say scar is your body’s way of repairing serious wounds. However, they are often very visible and many people want to remove scars to regain their self-confidence.
If you also want to remove your scar, then you can choose between following option according to your needs.
Chemicals are used to peel away the top layers of the scar tissue so that the skin cells below can grow back to give a smoother appearance. The scar itself will normally look far less obvious, and if it is a raised keloid or hypertrophic scar, then it will be smoother and flatter to the touch.
It has a very similar effect to a chemical peel, only the top layer of skin cells are removed using a small abrasive pad rather than chemicals. This technique usually involves the use of a local anesthetic.
There are two types of laser therapy used to remove and improve the appearance of scars, non-ablative and ablative.
- Non-ablative laser therapy- It works by cooling the scar after it has been exposed to a laser beam. After multiple sessions, the scar will normally be more pliable.
- Ablative laser therapy– It removes the top layer of scar tissue to a set depth and although healing will take longer, ablative laser therapy will generally be far more effective in removing a scar than non-ablative therapy will be.
Scar revision is a surgical technique that involves removing the scared skin tissue altogether. When this is done, the skin is closed up more neatly, so that there is an overall aesthetic improvement.
For very serious scarring, the only way to cover it up can be to remove the skin from another part of the body. This is generally only done if the original scar is in a very obvious place such as the face.
