Treatment for Surgical Scarring
Scarring can be obtrusive and can sometimes be in prominent areas of the body such as the face, or on the chest or hand which is visible every day. This can effect your confidence or remind you of the index accident or treatment. We are here to discuss if we can help reduce the scar and the appropriate treatment to reduce the visibility of this.
What causes a surgical scar?
A surgical scar is a type of injury to flesh caused by surgery, usually an incision, that requires the modification of all layers. Because a surgeon cannot control all the factors that determine the appearance of a scar, treatment after the surgical area has properly healed is sometimes necessary.
The challenge with surgical scars lie within the matrix of all the forms or categories of scars involving hypertrophic and keloid scars and pigmentation flaws. These scars thicken over time. Scar therapy has been historically limited. The Dermapen’s unique vertical stamping and depth control, up to 2.5mm, helps alleviate the appearance of surgical scars and can be a better modality to other methods or rollering. With surgical steel integrity, the robust nature of the automated needle tip (12 needles total and sized at thirty-three gauge) penetrate difficult scar tissue, dramatically improving appearance, texture, elasticity, size and mobility.
Microneedling Surgical Scar Regimen
Scars have altered physiology compared to other skin conditions. Multiple Dermapen microneedling treatments is recommended and may vary depending on the severity and type of surgical scar.
Treatments may involve both derma pen and meosotherapy intervention, consult you aesthetic nurse to discuss the best treatment protocol.
