What is Scarring?

A scar is an exaggerated response by the skin to an inflammation. It can develop as the result of acne or other types of inflammations or trauma, such as infections, chicken pox or surgery. Rarely, but more commonly in darker skin types, scars can develop spontaneously. Early intervention by a keloid scar specialist may affect the way a scar remodels itself and may minimise its appearance and prevent progression.

The disruption of the collagen network is reflected as a depressed (sunken) part on the surface of the skin. Some scars are small in diameter but deep, while some scars are wide and shallow. These are known as atrophic scars. On the other hand, hypertrophic or keloid scars occur due to the same triggering factors (inflammatory reaction). However, in hypertrophic scars, the disrupted collagen network is replaced by an overgrowth of dense fibrotic tissue, giving it the elevated, brownish, thick “cord like” scar tissue.

Stretch marks are a form of skin scarring associated with pregnancy, obesity, puberty and short-term weight gain from bodybuilding and other physical activities. They form when the dermis, the middle layer of the skin that maintains shape and elasticity, is stretched more than it can tolerate. Connective fibres in the skin eventually break, disrupting collagen production and causing scarring. Stretch marks can appear unsightly leading many people to seek out stretch marks removal treatments in Melbourne.Our scarring and keloid removal clinic is highly rated and provides a variety of treatments that stimulate collagen induction and improve the appearance of different types of scarring.

"I feel very confident having laser by a medical practitioner compared to a therapist with laser training. I was contacted via text post laser for a follow up and check however experienced no negative side effects."

- Jacqui, 8 June 2018

"Was very professional and advanced - and so well priced. I feel confident that it’s coming from Dr Aarthi- she explains everything and the other facialists are really good as well. Finally someone who knows what she is talking about and accessible! I’ve been trying to clear my skin for so long - I can’t tell you how many other laser clinic I have been too selling me products and nothing made an impact. But ive had carbon and peels just after a few treatments it’s looking clear and radiant. Will be coming here from now on and highly recommend it."
