What is a scar?

Scar is nothing but damage to the profound layer of the skin, called the dermis. While, dent to the superficial layer of skin called epidermis, will not cause a scar, only when the deeper layer will be affected, would lead to a scar, which can be very dangerous for an individual. He or she not only encounters a change in skin colour but also have chances of spreading on the rest of the skin.

What are the different types of scars?

There is essentially only one type of scar and its appearance depends on the nature of the injury that caused the damage, the wound’s location and various factors, which might be different for each person.

Sometimes a malfunctioned healing process can lead to a keloid, a red, itchy, thick, bump that usually enlarges gradually. Keloids when begin to enlarge, often appear larger than the size of the original wounds.

Making a Decision for Scar Removal Treatment

Your cosmetic surgeon will inspect your scars in order to determine the most suitable treatment for you and will also inform you about the outcomes, which are likely to occur after the surgery. Your surgeon will also inform you about surgical facility, supportive surgery alternatives, anaesthesia and cost of the surgery. 

Scar removal surgery will give you excellent aesthetic results, and the treatment will be less painful. Assess everything prior to your scar removal treatment. Rest assured, you will find a restored visual appearance of your affected skin

Who is the best candidate?

While, anybody can face an accidental injury, you must be in good health, must not have any active medical conditions and must be prepared for the results of the scar removal treatment, as many scars can not be removed permanently. After a scar removal surgery, there are often poor lines of orientation, colour mismatch, contour irregularities and more symptoms. Chain smokers are also not suitable candidates for scar removal treatment. Whether primary or secondary, smoking problems decrease the blood supply leading to prolonged healing time of a wound, skin loss, enhanced scarring and plenty of other complications.

Side effects:

While not every individual experiences any kind of side-effects after the scar removal treatment, some complain about swelling, redness, infection, acne formation and colour mismatch including leucoderma.
