Scarring is a natural part of the healing process when recovering from an injury or an illness. All wounds result in a scar, although some are more noticeable than others and can benefit greatly from laser scar removal treatment.
Scarring is caused by a particular pattern of healing in previously injured skin. If the wound involves the most superficial layers of the skin – the epidermis and superficial dermis – it may heal without scarring. If it is full thickness and involves the deep dermis, the skin will heal with scarring.
There are different types and degrees of scarring that can be treated with scar removal:
Australian Laser & Skin Clinics is able to provide a multi-treatment, scar removal program to address and reduce all grades of scarring. All treatments are performed by experienced, medically trained skin clinicians or registered cosmetic nurses.
Our scar removal options include:
Skin Needling is greatly recommended to assist in the treatment of most types of scarring on various parts of the body. Rejuvenating micro channels are formed in the skin that actively breaks up existing scar tissue. This encourages the production and distribution of new collagen that will work to build healthy, thicker and firmer skin in the scarred region. You will notice that the skin will be smoother and far more even. The Australian Laser & Skin Clinic has access to a variety of treatment options that can specifically target all types of scars.
Microdermabrasion is a suitable option to treat new or minimal scars. Combining mechanical exfoliation with a pressured vacuum Microdermabrasion very accurately smooths and refines mild, shallow scarring. The mechanical exfoliation provides a softened and clarified complexion whilst the vacuum assists in lymphatic drainage to promote a clearer and more evenly toned skin balance.

LLLT is an effective, comfortable and proven procedure that treats scarring from within. Emitting a gentle beam to the scar LLLT naturally stimulates a healing response to promote cellular renewal and collagen production in the damaged tissue. LLLT provides a suitable option to treat old scarring of all grades.
