Common Skin Concern

Scarring

The skin, our body's largest organ, serves as a protective barrier against heat, light, injury, infection, and other external factors. When we experience an injury or wound, the skin regenerates as part of the body's natural healing process, often resulting in scars.

The severity and appearance of scars depend on various factors, including the depth and size of the injury, genetics, overall health, and even gender and ethnicity. While Laser Skin Aesthetics cannot guarantee complete removal of scars, appropriate treatment can significantly reduce their appearance and improve skin texture.

What is Scarring?

A scar is the result of your body’s natural healing response to an injury or wound, occurring through a complex three-phase process of inflammation, proliferation, and maturation.

This healing process often leaves a scar that may be raised, sunken, lumpy, smooth, red, or itchy. Unfortunately, not all scars are welcome, leading many people to seek treatment to improve the appearance of unwanted, visible scars.

Types of Scarring

Types of Scarring

Atrophic Scars
Atrophic Scars

Atrophic scars heal below the normal layer of skin tissue, appearing indented, depressed, or sunken. These scars result from the destruction of collagen during inflammatory conditions like acne. Atrophic scars can be categorised into three types: Ice pick scars, Boxar scars, Rolling scars.

Hypertrophic Scars
Hypertrophic Scars

Hypertrophic scars heal above the normal layer of skin tissue, appearing thicker, raised, and varying in colour from pink to red. These scars do not extend beyond the boundaries of the injury site and may regress over time with treatment. They are caused by the abnormal production of extra collagen at the injury site during the healing phase.

Keloid Scar
Keloid Scars

Like hypertrophic scars, keloid scars rise above skin level but extend beyond the injury site and do not regress. They form due to excessive collagen production, often appearing red to purple. Harder to treat, keloid scars can affect mobility depending on severity and location. Unfortunately, Laser Skin Aesthetics does not treat keloid scars.

Contracture Scars
Contracture Scars

Contracture scars occur when a large area of skin is damaged and lost, often due to burns. These scars pull the edges of the skin together, creating a tight area that can impair mobility. Contracture scars may extend deeper, affecting the muscles and nerves beneath. Treatment for contracture scars is often surgical.

Such an amazing package! Booked the groupon deal which was a great price at around $90. The amount that was included in it was just unreal! Amazing massage, facial, back scrub, eyebrow tint and wax and some refreshments at the end. I was super nervous about having my eyebrows done by somebody else as I usually just do them myself but the lady taking care of me for them spot on! The clinic owner was so warm and friendly and has some amazing self created skin and makeup products. A great day 💗

I bought the 2 hour special on Groupon for myself and my mother. We both really enjoyed the session. The staff were very friendly and the room was clean and inviting. My only suggestion is when other staff members come in to watch/learn, it's good practice to ask for the customers consent prior. I was quite surprised to see another person watching, when I turned onto my back. As I hadn't heard someone come in or was asked if I was okay with someone watching.

I've been going to this salon for the past 3 years and I can honestly say that my skin is the best it's ever been. The packages are reasonably priced, there is no other salon that can give the same value. I recommend to experience their service personally so you can judge for yourself.
