Scars

Scars are a build up of skin tissue which develops after an injury, such as a cut or wound. These may develop as the result of acne or other types of trauma, such as infections, chicken pox or surgery.

Scars & Stretch Marks Removal Melbourne

The type of scarring will determine which scar removal treatment is most suitable for a particular scar. There are two main types of scars:

  • Atrophic scars – Disruption of the collagen network in response to a wound results in a depressed (sunken) part on the surface of the skin. Atrophic scars may be small in diameter but deep, or wide and shallow.
  • Hypertrophic scars – Hypertrophic scars, also known as keloid scars, are caused by disruption in the collagen network replaced by an overgrowth of dense fibrotic tissue, causing a thick, elevated, or cord-like appearance. Keloid scar removal can help to flatten keloid acne scars and many other forms of keloid scarring.

Stretch Marks

Stretch MarksStretch marks are a very common type of skin scarring. The main causes are over-weight body disposition, puberty and short-term weight gain from bodybuilding and other physical activities. They are also usually experienced by women after giving birth (known as postpartum/pregnancy stretch marks).

Stretch marks most commonly appear on the hips, thighs, arms and breasts, but may also form on other areas of the body. They occur 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 therefore causing scarring.
