Scar Revision |
Scars come in many shapes, sizes, texture and colours [atrophic, hypertrophic, contracture and keloid] as a result of an injury or surgery. However, a scar eventually settles — whether they remain red, raised, depressed or indented depends on the individual’s genetic makeup, age and the area of the body.
Though a scar cannot be erased entirely, there are several options that will minimise it — leaving the scar blending in with the surrounding wrinkle pattern, skin tone and texture.
The effective treatment can be achieved either by advanced laser treatment, surgical revision or silicon gels pressure treatment to modify the scars.
Removing tattoos can be achieved through non-invasive and advanced laser technology which breaks up the pigment colors through a high-intensity synchronized light beam with a photoacoustic effect.
DOWNTIME: Walk in and walk out procedure for laser and silicone gel treatments; day surgery for surgical procedures. FOLLOW UP SESSIONS: Patients may require an additional repeat laser treatments, subject to the severity of the scar.
For tattoos, patients will require further treatments at six-week intervals [subject to the individual’s tattoo].
