Acne scars are common in young adults. It is important to treat acne properly so acne scar can be minimised. Acne scars are classified in different grades and are also subtyped into several different types depending on the morphologic features. The initial assessment is important since different treatment modalities are useful for different grades or subtypes. More invasive treatment modalities, for example, are not necessary to improve early grade acne scars.
We provide specific treatments for different types of acne scars, to ensure the best clinical outcome.
Accidents do happen and these may lead to disfiguring scar formation. Initial wound closure and management is perhaps the most important aspect in traumatic scar management. Depending on the type of injury, these scars can result in contractures, discolouration including traumatic tattoo, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation or redness. Each of these elements needs attention to properly improve these scars. We are a team of expert plastic surgeons and medical experts to provide you with detailed assessment, and appropriate management.
Surgical scars are generally better than traumatic scars because of precise incision, near perfect opposition, and adequate wound healing environments provided with proper dressings. However, abnormal wound healing can still result in disfiguring scars such as hypertrophic, and keloid types. There are evidences which suggest early intervention of young scars may provide overall better outcome, by reducing proliferatioin and induce early remodelling of scar formation. Also there are cellular signalling pathways that have been identified as possible causes of abnormal scar formation, and these can be modulated with various modalities to aid in post surgical scar reduction. We offer non-invasive, clinically proven energy based device treatments to achieve this goal of post surgical scar reduction. Please come and speak to us to find out more.
Keloids are defined as overgrowth of scar tissue beyond the limits of initial tissue injury. It is common and can be quite disfiguring. Keloid scars also come in many different subtypes and there are other medical conditions which mimic keloid scars. Therefore, the initial assessment, again, is absolutely critical. There are conventional treatments such as intralesional injections, but this is rarely helpful on its own. We provide wider variety of clinically proven treatment options including surgical and non-surgical treatment options. Come and speak to us about your scar concerns.
