Scarring

Don't let untreated scarring spoil the look of your skin

Scarring

If you have

  • an untreated scar or scarring from surgery, after an injury, or following a skin condition such as acne
  • and it’s affecting your self-confidence and your social life

then the good news is that at Skin Perfection London, we can treat your scarring to make it less visible, and improve the look and feel of your skin.

We will give you all the advice you need about our specialist treatments and products that help to reduce your scarring and restore your confidence in yourself and your appearance.

See below for more information.

About scarring

Scars are a natural part of the healing process. They are formed by the skin producing extra collagen to strengthen the area affected, for example, by injury or surgery (including the removal of tattoos). Scarring can also be a result of skin conditions such as acne and chickenpox.

Although most scars gradually fade, it can take years and they are unlikely to disappear completely. More pronounced scars obviously take longer to heal, but any scarring in visible areas such as the face, arms and legs can be distressing and leave us feeling very uncomfortable with our appearance.

Stretch marks may look similar to scars, but the way they are formed – and therefore treated – is slightly different: click here for information about treating stretch marks.

Treatments for scarring

At Skin Perfection, we offer the following treatments for reducing or removing the appearance of scarring.

Laser skin resurfacing - uses new, more comfortable non-ablative, fractional laser technology to treat lines, wrinkles and scarring, with minimal downtime.

Micro-needling - used as a stand-alone treatment or as part of a four-stage process to help reduce lines, wrinkles, open pores and acne scarring, and treat dry and dehydrated skin - leaving your skin looking fresher and smoother. With two treatment options: our state-of-the-art Dermafrac machine (minimal downtime) or a Dermaroller (slightly longer downtime).

Skin peels or resurfacers - help to improve skin texture and redefine pores, and suitable for a range of conditions including pigmentation (discolouration), scars left by ingrown hairs, lines and wrinkles, redness or rosacea and acne; available in different strengths and with different downtimes, according to your skin condition as well as time, financial or social commitments.

A combination of any of the above treatments may be suitable: after your consultation, your Skin Perfection specialist may discuss combining some of these treatment options to maximize your results.

To find out which of these treatments is most suitable for you, please call us today to book your free consultation and skin-health check.
