Scars can be treated effectively with minimal pain and no downtime.
Regain your confidence by minimising the appearance of unsightly scars. At Contour Clinics, our cosmetic physicians use the latest laser treatments for scar removal.
Scar tissue is resurfaced with our fractional non-ablative technology. Specialist laser beams are passed in tiny columns through the outer layers of the skin where they encounter the water rich dermal layers. These water molecules are stimulated to oscillate causing microscopic damage to surrounding scar tissue. This stimulates collagen production, causing renewal remodelling and tightening of scarring. Because the outer layers of skin are devoid of water, these layers are spared from damage. This means less downtime, with identical results to the more ablative laser therapies. Different types of laser treatment may be selected depending on whether scarring is red, pigmented or pale.
This treatment is minimally uncomfortable. Topical anaesthetic creams can be used if required. Cold compresses are used throughout the treatment to reduce the hot sensation one may feel during laser treatments. Some patients describe a sunburn sensation once anaesthetic creams have worn off.
Risks associated with laser resurfacing are rare in the hands of expert medical practitioners.
Redness and a sunburn sensation are common post treatment. Your cosmetic physician will prescribe a post laser cream to soothe any redness that may result. Occasionally, you may experience blistering, which will heal without issue. Rarely, patients with darker skin may experience hyperpigmentation in the treatment area. A lightening cream may be prescribed prior to treatment if you are at risk. Scarring does not occur with non-ablative laser resurfacing.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses your own plasma to stimulate stem cell differentiation, growth factors, and collagen production to minimise the appearance of scarring. This is best used in combination with fractional laser resurfacing. See our PRP page for more information
Dermapen skin needling causes mild skin trauma, which stimulates your body’s natural repair mechanisms. This stimulates collagen production and increases the skins elastic potential.
Dermal fillers are occasionally required to provide volume to depressed scars. This is assessed on an individual basis.
Subcision involves tiny incisions to release scar tethering from the skins deeper layers. This is particularly important in pitted acne scaring.
The absolute best in Sydney. I would not go anywhere else to get anything done. Everyone I have encountered at this clinic has been so extremely warm and professional and put in so much time and effort to truly achieve your desired outcome. Can’t recommend this place enough, do not waste your money elsewhere.
