Many of us have scars from various events in our life. Acne and surgical scarring are the most common. At Central Wagga Medical we have a number of treatments to help minimise the appearance of your scars.
What is a scar?
A scar is an area of fibrous tissue that replaces normal skin after an injury. Scars result from the biological process of wound repair in the skin, as well as in other organs and tissues of the body. Thus, scarring is a natural part of the healing process.
How can I reduce the appearance of my scars?
This depends on the type of scar you have. Thick, lumpy scars (called keloid scars) require very different treatment to pocketed, acne type scars.
We use a combination of treatment options, including Platelet Rich Plasma, dermal needling, intralesional cortisone injections, intense light therapy and chemical peels
“The first time I treated a patient’s acne scarred cheeks with PRP, I was pretty skeptical (as was my patient to be honest!). However when she returned for her second treatment, I was struggling to find scarring to inject into, that is how good just one treatment was..."
"After her third injection her skin was like new. I was hooked and have been treating acne scarring with confidence ever since”
How do I book a scar removal treatment?
As scars are very different from person to person, it is best to book a time to come and discuss your scars with us and work out a treatment plan that best suits your needs.
