Nassif MedSpa is proud to include the scar clinic as part of our range of treatments available here in the UK. When the skin and surrounding tissues are damaged, injured or burned, they can often heal in the form of a scar. These can be as a fine line, hypertrophic (thickened), keloid (enlarged), pitted or sunken (e.g from acne) or contracted (from burns, when the skin shrinks and is restricted in movement).
The appearance of a scar can impact on a person’s well-being and self-confidence. However, through our advanced range of methods and technology, we are able to deliver a portfolio of treatments that can work to successfully fade and erase scarring.
As no scar is the same, a personalised approach needs to be taken in order to produce the best outcome. This can be achieved through a single treatment or as part of a combination of procedures that include the use of lasers, resurfacing and topical treatments, as recommended by our team of aesthetic doctors.
Fractional lasers deliver pulses of energy to the dermis, heating the tissues to encourage an inflammatory response that helps to remodel the skin tissues, improving on their colour, texture and tension. The surrounding skin remains unharmed by this process from which the renewal and regeneration of new skin cells is also encouraged.
Other available technologies at the MedsSa work by flattening or filling in the area, either with resurfacing or injectable treatments, blending the scar in with the surrounding tissues.
As each case is different, the treatment protocol may vary, as can the final results. Depending on the plan of treatments for you and your concerns, the outcome may be seen immediately, or may need to allow for several months to develop. The age, size and depth of the scar can determine the type of treatment that is recommended and how many sessions will be needed.
