At Rejuvence Clinic we recognise the psychological distress and often slow self esteem that is associated with scarring on the face and body. We are experts at providing advice as well as realistic expectations of treatment. As well as chemical peels and microneedling, we also specialise in the use of PDO threads and platelet rich plasma (PRP) for the improvement of scars. We won't promise to make your scars disappear but we are sure to bring a smile to your face with a real spring in your step. 

Scarring is the inevitable consequence of damage to the skin. Scarless healing exists in the foetus but not following birth.

The extent of scarring and quality of wound healing is dependent upon a number of factors. Skin type often affects the quality of healing. Darker skin types have a tendency to form darker scars and suffer from post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. They also have an increased tendency to develop hypertrophic scarring (raised scars). In Afro-Caribbean and Asian skin types keloid scars (raised scars that extend beyond the site of injury) are a problem.

Wounds that are subject to infection or chronic inflammation can also result in the formation of displeasing scarring especially in conditions such as acne. Certain regions of the body tend to scar less and heal faster than others. The face tends to heal quickly but is the most visible part of the body. Hypertrophic and keloid scars tend to develop over the back, chest and torso more so than the face. Scars need to be stable with no evidence of inflammation or infection before any treatment can be effective in the improvement of their appearance.

FAQ

What is Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation?

This is the result of increased pigmentation at the site of a previous injury to the skin following healing. Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation can be treated with a combination of bleaching and blending with specific combinations of topical creams. Depending upon the depth of the hyperpigmentation chemical peels including the 3-step peel and controlled depth blue peel can be used to improve hyperpigmentation following a period of stabilisation of skin health with a good skin care regime. Chemical peels can also help to improve skin texture and tightening of the skin.

What sort of scars are associated with acne?

Acne is an extremely common condition affecting almost 80% of adults below the age of 25 years. Once resolved many are left with unsightly scarring. Acne scars can be classified into ice pick scars, rolling scars or boxcars. The deeper the sky the more difficult it can be to treat. Multiple treatment options are available and the best results are achieved with a combination of these.

What treatment options are available for acne scars?

Micro needling in combination with platelet rich plasma has been shown to have positive effects on acne scarring. A series of 3 to 4 sessions are needed and the risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation in susceptible individuals is very low.

Skin texture can be effected by rolling scars and boxcars and often a levelling procedure is required. The three-step peel, and in more severe cases, a controlled depth blue can help with this. However it is important to remember that for chemical peels, particularly deep chemical peels, it is very important that the skin is prepared well through the use of a ZO skincare regime lasting at least 6 to 18 weeks.

Dermal fillers can be used to fill up individual scars of relatively substantial depth. Good results can be achieved but further sessions are required in 8 to 12 months due to reabsorption of hyaluronic acid filler.

What are the treatment options for scars after surgery or lacerations?

Stable scars over regions of lacerations or following surgery are amenable to improvement with a number of treatment options. Any element of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation can be treated with bleaching products and, if need be, blending with a combination of bleaching agents and vitamin A

Scars can be improved by reactivating the healing process using micro needling. Injection of platelet rich plasma into scars have demonstrated improvements in scar appearance following 3 to 4 sessions over a period of 3 to 4 months. In some cases however, excision of the scar with closure is necessary. This is normally limited to large substantial scars. A combination approach will yield the best results.

How are hypertrophic and keloid scars treated?

Hypertrophic and keloid scars can prove very stubborn and difficult to treat. The best form of treatment is usually prevention in patients known to be susceptible. The use of compression garments and regular massaging with silicone gel can often help reduce the occurrence of hypertrophic and keloid scars. These types of scars are often treated with injections of small amounts of steroid that can help to reduce them in size. Following improvement complete excision by a plastic surgeon is normally the best option. Other treatment modalities may only serve to worsen the scars. Hyperpigmentation of hypertrophic and keloid scars can be treated with bleaching agents and/or injection of steroid into the scars.
