If you have a scar that causes you discomfort in your appearance or a lack of confidence, Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne can help.

Your scarring was likely caused during the healing of some previously injured skin, often via a wound or surgery. Scars come in different sizes, but also varying types, some of which can be suitable for scar removal treatment including:

  • Dark or Light Scars: Caused by an injury with a depth that extends into the dermis. If formed seven to ten days after wound, a light or dark scar can form.
  • Raised Scars: The abnormal healing of the skin often results in prominent scar tissue of either a Keloid Scar (outside of the border of the initial injury and Hypertrophic Scars (raised but to a lesser degree).
  • Indented Scars: The most common scar type often as a result of acne and caused by a lesser amount of scar tissue forming, which does not match up with the surrounding skin.
Scar Removal Surgery

It should be noted that while the procedure is referred to as scar removal treatment, it is not possible to remove a scar altogether. There are, however, ways to improve the comfort and appearance of a scar which will make it far less noticeable and easier to conceal.

Scar removal has non-surgical and surgical options, or a combination of surgical and non-surgical techniques can also be used if required. The team at Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne will assess your scar(s) during a free consultation to decide which process will be best for your situation.

Scar Removal Melbourne

The following techniques are available at Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne to help with scar removal:

  • Dermabrasion: A procedure removes the top layers of skin with a machine, almost like sanding. This process lessens the visibility of the scars after the skin surface heals.
  • Laser resurfacing: A high-energy light laser is targeted at a certain skin depth, which removes scar tissue and is particularly effective on keloid scars or scars as a result of acne.
  • Excision: This procedure involves a scar being cut out and repaired with stitches that will produce a thinner and less noticeable scar.
  • Z-Plasty or W-Plasty: These two procedures re-align the scar tissue and are often used when a scar lies across a skin crease or in a situation that may involve burns.
  • Skin graft or flap surgery: Of all the options, this is the most complex and is usually reserved for scarring over large areas of skin that may be restricted in their movement. The skin grafting procedure involves a piece of unaffected skin known as the donor site being placed on an area where scar tissue has been removed. More complex again is flap surgery, which involves the transfer of healthy skin with fat, blood vessels, and in some cases, muscle from the donor site to the required area.

Non-surgical treatment options

Not all scar treatment needs to be surgical, as there are topical steroid (cortisone) creams or the injection of a steroid (cortisone) that can help lessen the intensity of the scar.

In some cases, patients can have cryotherapy, which involves the surface of the scar being frozen with nitrogen. This causes the scar to blister and shrinks, making it far less noticeable. Chemical peels and soft tissue fillers such as collagen have also been used to lessen the severity of scarring.

Most Popular FAQs

Surgical scar revision may not be suitable for everyone, and it is best to speak with the team at Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne during a free consultation so they can assess your situation and recommend the best course of action. We will work with you to ensure you have all of the necessary information before making a decision while assessing your general health to find which treatment will be best suited to you.

With any surgical procedure, it is best if patients are physically healthy and have realistic expectations about the potential outcomes of the treatment. If you have a scar that is causing pain and discomfort or limiting your movement and mobility, then scar removal may be a good option for you.

We also use these methods to help people who are self-conscious about the appearance of their scars. It is also important that you are a non-smoker or stop smoking prior to any surgery.

This will depend upon the procedure that is required. A general or local anaesthesia may be necessary; however, it is vital to note that modern anaesthesia is very safe but does bring with it an element of risk. If this is required, our team will provide all of the necessary information.
