Say Goodbye to Scars

Media

Various types of light scars and scar removal treatments, so that people with all kinds of scars no longer need to worry!

Acne scars, hyperpigmented or pigmented scars, surgical scars, and keloids are the most common types of scars.

Compared with blackheads, inflamed pimples look like red bumps, pustules, nodules (larger red bumps), and cysts, which can leave scars if not squeezed. And these acne, if squeezed or improper "beauty therapy", are more likely to leave severe marks on the skin.

Pigmented scars on the legs are usually caused by a rash or insect bites. Among Asians, pigmentation is a normal response to skin damage. If you stop scratching, pigmentation may fade naturally.

As the name suggests, surgical scars are surgical operations such as lumpectomy and sutures after skin cuts.

Scars are usually limited to the injured area. Scars that exceed the scope of skin damage are called keloids. For example, vaccination is usually injected into the skin through a fine needle, but the keloids appearing at the injection site are larger than a pinhole wound. Keloids are mostly inherited from families.

Scar Removal

  • Fading cream fades pigmented scars. Sunlight will add dark pigment, so it is necessary to protect against sun.
  • Occlusiv escar gel and silicone gel sheets can help strengthen the scar's water content and soften scars, especially new ones.
  • A small amount of steroid injection can reduce the accumulation of collagen in the scar. This therapy is only used for prominent scars on the skin surface, such as keloids. Because non-professional injection techniques can cause side effects such as excessive thinning of the scar and the collapse or depression of the skin around the scar, the injection must be performed by a trained physician.
  • Scar revision or precision replaces indecent scars with a delicate surgical scar. The original scar is removed, and then the edge of the wound is sutured with fine sutures, and then laser therapy can achieve better results.
  • Subcision scar removal (subcision) is a small operation. The doctor cuts into the skin of the scar with an instrument, cuts the scar that involves deep tissues, and promotes collagen synthesis in that area. It is especially effective for deeper scars and pitted acne scars.

  • Chemical peel can speed up the exfoliation of the skin's surface and stimulate collagen regeneration. This technology promotes the repair of skin on scars and helps to diminish pigmented scars and superficial sunken scars.
  • Intense Pulsed Light therapy has a scar-reducing effect, can also promote collagen proliferation, disintegrate superficial melanin, and is suitable for skin with coexisting scars and pits.
  • There are various types of laser treatments available to treat scars. The main target of the vascular laser is red blood cells, which are very effective in reducing new scars (such as acne, abrasions and burns). Pigmentlaser penetrates deeper pigments in scars than chemical peels and intense pulsed light.
  • The Cool Touch laser can promote collagen synthesis without burning oil. It is especially effective for sunken scars (such as acne scars and chicken pox scars). It is suitable for people who have low pain tolerance and want a shorter recovery period. Of course, the laser that burns the skin's surface layer is much more than the collagen made by non-invasive laser, and the patient feels more discomfort during the course of treatment, and it takes several days to recover.
