Scar revision options – surgical and non surgical in Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire

Who is suitable for scar revision treatment?

Most wounds caused by accidents or from surgery result in some degree of scarring and are a normal part of the healing process.  Scar revision aims to improve the appearance of a scar, however once the skin or underlying tissue is damaged, there will still be some scarring and treatment will not completely remove it but should improve matters.  There are several factors which will assist with the visibility of scarring, such as the location of the scar, the natural ability of the body to heal, lifestyle factors such as smoking, sun exposure and also your age and colour of skin.


Scar revision surgery

There are several types of scars such as Keloid scars (raised and red), Hypertrophic scars, (raised) and Sunken Striae (stretch marks), which can greatly affect confidence and can sometimes become troublesome or unsightly. If you are unhappy with the appearance of a scar, then it is worth while arranging a consultation with a Plastic Surgery expert, to discuss the options available to improve or manage you scar.  The aim of any surgery is to improve the appearance by altering the direction or position of the scar in order to appear less obvious.


Scar revision treatment non surgical

For non surgical treatment of scars, lasers may be used to successfully treat both the colour and the depth of the scar. It is extremely important that you choose a suitably qualified practitioner if you are considering laser treatment, in order to prevent any damage to the skin.
