All injuries and operations leave permanent scars. In most cases, scars heal well but sometimes they can be disfiguring, sore, itchy, or indented. Although it is impossible to make a scar disappear, with Elanic’s expert help, it can be possible to reduce their presence significantly.
Addressing Scars from Surgery or Trauma
Once a scar has formed it cannot be removed. Most scars fade with time leaving a fine, pale line that is hard to see. If your scar is indented, raised, red, and fiery, or has become thick, bulky, and painful, then speak to one of our experienced consultant plastic surgeons. While it might not be possible to make a scar disappear completely, it can be possible to significantly reduce their presence and enable you to enjoy a clear and fresh appearance.
If you’re interested in learning more about how our team of surgeons can help you mitigate the presence of frustrating scarring left behind after an injury or surgery, Elanic is here to help. Simply reach out to our Glasgow call centre and set up your consultation at the clinic location most convenient for you.
How Can Scar Revision Help Me?
Unsightly scars can cause patients discomfort and distress, even when they’re located in an inconspicuous area, or can be easily hidden by clothing. In some cases, they can be a painful reminder of a past injury or trauma. In others, they can simply be annoying remnants from a previous surgical procedure. Whatever your specific case may be, we can help.
Our consultant plastic surgeons in Glasgow can improve on the scar you have, leaving a finer more delicate one that will settle better. Indented scars can be treated with fat injections or laser resurfacing, and red scars can also be faded with a laser. Thick and bulky scars may be improved using special silicone dressings or steroid injections. Sometimes surgical correction and re-orientation may be required.
Our Scar Removal Techniques
Cosmetic surgery is never a one-size-fits-all type of solution. We’ll take the time to get to know your physical characteristics and be sure that we have an incredibly firm understanding of your cosmetic goals, as well. This will enable us to come up with a treatment plan that addresses the specific nature of your issue, so you can look forward to results that truly enhance your look.
Using the incredible power of laser energy, we can significantly reduce the presence of certain types of scars, while encouraging your skin to actively generate new collagen and elastin, which essentially rejuvenates your skin from the inside out.
Some scars actually present as indentations in the skin, rather than the raised or bumpy appearance that is typically associated with scarring. Fat injections are safe and natural ways to reverse the appearance of this type of scar.
Dressings and Injections
For larger scars that are thicker and bulkier, another solution like a silicone dressing or steroid injection may be consulted. These enable us to address your scarring without the need for surgical intervention.
