Understanding Scar Revision | treatments for scars
Scarring is permanent. Currently there is no treatment available that miraculously causes a scar to disappear. There are, however, several treatment options available to help minimise the appearance of scarring by blending its colour and texture into the surrounding skin and blurring the borders.
When the skin undergoes severe trauma or trauma with infection present, the end result is scarring. Scarring can range from discoloured skin, a linear scar, or pick/pock marks, to a chemical and heat burn scar. Immediately after trauma the skin begins a series of processes to repair the damaged tissue. Collagen is quickly laid down to seal the wound, however this collagen is different in structure and therefore the appearance of the surrounding skin is also different. This scarring initially appears reddened and slowly fades to a silver colour. These processes can take up to 5 years to completely heal, however with a scar revision program, improvement can be seen in as little as 4 treatments.
