Every time you have a skin injury, the tissue will heal with a scar, which can be as small as a light coloured line on your skin, or can be as significant as a prominent keloid scar.
Most people have a scars that they would like to get rid of. A scar might be uncomfortable or itchy, or may even restrict movement. You might want to remove a scar because you find it unsightly, or your self esteem is affected. Some scars cannot be treated entirely, but we can improve the scar appearance through laser therapy, dermal fillers or scar surgery.

Most types of scarring can be treated, including: keloid scars, acne scars, burn scars and hypertrophic scars.
Depending on the severity of your scar, there are several different scar treatments to be considered. Dr Firas Al-Niaimi will discuss your suitability for each treatment during your consultation. Scar reduction options include:
Laser resurfacing for scars: Laser treatment is particularly effective for acne scars or facial scar treatment.
Dermal fillers: This technique works by “plumping up” pitted scars.
Both of these techniques will need repeat treatments for maximum results.
Surgical scar removal: This technique uses skin grafts to reduce larger scars.
These techniques can help the scarred skin to repair, leaving a healthier appearance, as well as tightening your skin.
The benefits of scar treatment are huge; your self esteem and confidence will also have a real boost, especially when receiving facial scarring treatment and can also stop any itching or irritation from scars.
Your scar treatment aftercare plan will depend on what specific treatment you have. Dr Firas Al-Niaimi will discuss with you what aftercare will be best for your treatment during your consultation and provide you with a comprehensive aftercare program.
