What is a scar?

Scars are fibrous tissue that replace normal skin tissue following injury, it is a natural part of the healing process. Scar tissue is composed of collagen (the same as healthy skin), but the fibre composition of it is different. The collagen fibres found in fibrosis tissue cross-links and forms a pronounced alignment in a single direction resulting in a scar.

How best to treat scars?

To effectively reduce the appearance of scars, we must stimulate new collagen to replace the collagen fibres in the scar. We use Innopen micro-needling to create a controlled wound and stimulate the bodies wound healing response, resulting in new collagen formation.

Collagen synthesis takes 6 weeks to peak so treatments are advised with a 6 week gap and will typically take between 3-6 sessions to get a significant improvement depending on the severity, age and depth of the scar.

The goal with scar treatment is to achieve a lightening and reduction in its appearance, it is unlikely to completely remove it.

With over 18 years combined experience in the Aesthetic industry, we have seen many types of scars and have equipped ourselves with the right tools to manage nearly all conditions, while considering budget and lifestyle. 

All of our treatments are results driven and clinically proven to make sure you get the improvement in your scarring that you deserve.
