What is a Scar?

Scars result when the skin repairs wounds caused by accident, disease, or surgery. The more the skin is damaged and the longer it takes to heal, the greater the chance of a noticeable scar.

Treatment of scars depends on the type of scar, shape, depth, type of skin and most importantly attitude and motivation of the patient. Acne(pimple) scars are of different shapes & size: round, oval, linear, worm like. Each type of scar needs a special & different treatment.



TREATMENT OF SCARS

Creams do not help in management of scars. Therefore in almost all cases, different procedures are needed for management of scars. Any treatment should be safe, easy, and without any after effects or side effects.

TREATMENT OPTIONS


PIXEL LASER MACHINE




FRACTIONAL (PIXEL) LASER

Fractional laser is the basic treatment of most scars. It is called fractional because laser affects only a fraction of the treated area. Therefore it is very safe.

This is how pixel laser is done




What is Pixel laser?

In this technology, the Pixel laser treats only a small fraction of the skin at a time (about 25-35%), and leaves the rest of the skin unaffected. There may be a slight redness for one day & the patient can go to work the very same day. Treatment is quick- only 15 minutes.

Why is it better?

It works well for irregular scars like oval, linear, post injury scars. Healing and recovery are rapid. It is a very safe, effective & painless treatment. 4-6 sessions are needed once in 2-3 weeks. It by itself gives 60% results.

DERMAROLLER

In this method, an instrument called DERMAROLLER consisting of tiny needles is rolled over the scars. It is done after applying an anaesthetic cream to the treatment area to be left for about 35-40min. It is followed by mild redness & swelling of the treated area for 2-3 days. It is done once in 3-4 weeks It is useful for scars which are deeper and have loose skin.

DERMAROLLER THIS IS HOW DERMAROLLER IS DONE IMMEDIATE POST PROCEDURE

TCA CROSS

Here, a chemical called Trichloro Acetic Acid is applied onto the Scars. It results in mild redness of the treated area lasting for 1-2 days. It gives good results for the tiny pinhole like scars. It is a painless procedure & no anaesthesia needed.

POST TCA CROSS




SUBSCISSION

In this technique, after local injection of anaesthesia, a needle is inserted underneath the skin to break the fibres that have been pulling the scar down. This relaxes the scars & the scar is lifted up. This also results in mild redness & swelling of the treated area for 3-4 days.

PUNCH ELEVATION

Here, a punch is used to treat the round regular scars. 2-3mm punch with cutting edge is used to lift the scars. It is also done under local anaesthesia.

SUMMARY

It is important to understand that the objective of treating scars is to improve them- not to make them disappear completely. So realistic expectation is important. Once treated, scars don’t recur unless pimples recur.
