Scar treatment in Sydney NSW

Improve the appearance of scars

The body creates scars as part of the body's natural healing stage, following an injury to the skin's deeper layer (known as the dermis).

This process of recovery leads to a change in the collagen fibres, which take on a cross-linked formation rather than their usual basketweave arrangement. As a result, scars can look different depending on the wound’s placement on the body, the trauma’s nature, and the individual’s genetic factors.

Dr. Adam Najem can provide scar treatment to help improve the appearance of scars, using a range of techniques depending on the nature of the scar and your end goals.

What is Scar Treatment?

Scar treatment can reduce the visibility of scars in specific target areas, improving the overall appearance of the skin.

What Does Scar Treatment Involve?

Four different treatments are available:

Fraxel Lasers

This incorporates fractional laser resurfacing technology to improve the appearance of scars. Microscopic lasers penetrate a fraction of skin, allowing their energy to be absorbed by the flesh’s water molecules.

Next, these become converted to heat, to create microscopic thermal zones of coagulation.

This stimulates the body’s healing process, activating the replacement of old and / or damaged cells. As a result, scars are reduced.

The healing process following Fraxel lasers is fast, as the treatment leaves untreated areas between target zones.

PRP Therapy

PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy revolves around using your own blood as a form of treatment.

Platelet rich plasma is extracted from the blood, concentrated, and then injected into the target area. This stimulates specific growth factors affecting skin regeneration, collagen production, and tissue repair.

As a result, the appearance of scars will be improved and made less visible.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal filler treatment involves biodegradable gels, based on certain substances found naturally in the body. As dermal fillers’ materials are found in your own collagen, this treatment is tolerated well by the body with no need to perform allergy tests.

Depressed scars are treated by injecting a dermal filler beneath the actual scar, to elevate the depression in the flesh’s surface. The appearance of the target area is improved instantly, and the fillers tend to last between 12 and 24 months.

Dermal fillers are compatible with skin types of all kinds, and are regarded as one of the most well-tolerated options for acne scar treatment.

Chemical Peels

In a chemical peel procedure, chemical agents will be administered to the skin in the target area, to treat specific conditions.

In cases where strong chemical peels are provided with an exfoliation, the skin’s outer layers will generate new skin cells. This encourages the scarring in the target region to become improved on an almost permanent basis.

This can leave you with skin that is smoother and fresher.
