Skin Scarring Treatment at Sun & Skin Medical Centre

At Sun & Skin Medical Centre, we understand that the appearance of scars can be unsightly, and cause self-consciousness, especially if they are in a visible area of the body. We offer professional skin scarring treatment Melbourne patients near the Mornington Peninsula can easily access at our local Mt Eliza medical clinic.

Scarring treatment can help to reduce the appearance of scars.

Scarring is a natural part of the skins healing process after and injury or trauma to the skin. There are a number of different types of scars that can result, but fortunately, we offer scarring treatment that will reduce the appearance of these, and in some cases, even eliminate the scar completely.

  • Fine line scars: these scars are formed when minor wounds (such as cuts) heal. They often have a raised line, which over time, usually fades and flattens.
  • Keloid scars: these scars are usually thick and elevated beyond the scar line itself.
  • Hypertrophic scars: raised scars that remain within the boundary of the original wound.
  • Pitted or sunken scars: these scars appear as hollow indentations or impressions in the skin. A common example is acne scarring.
  • Scar contractures: these form when abnormal healing processes occur, pulling the skin in the surrounding areas. This can sometimes restrict movement if it occurs near a joint.
  • Stretch marks: indented streaks that appears on abdomen, breast, hips, buttocks and thighs, very common with pregnancy.

We offer a range of skin scarring treatment options.

Sun & Skin Medical Centre offers a range of medical and cosmetic skin scarring treatment options. During your consultation, our experienced doctors and skin therapists will thoroughly examine the scars to be treated, as well as discuss with you your expectations. They will be able to recommend the most appropriate combination of treatments to suit you.

Some of the skin scarring treatment options commonly offered to patients include:

  • Cutera/Excel V+ Laser treatment: this non-invasive skin scarring treatment uses focused laser energy to target and break down scar tissue. It can reduce the appearance of the scar and help to promote the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
  • Microneedling: the Dermapen 4 device is used to make tiny punctures in the skin. This process stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, which can improve the overall appearance of scars and provide overall skin rejuvenation.
  • Chemical peels: this type of skin scarring treatment involves the use of carefully selected dermaceutical products. These are applied to the skin, causing the outer skin layers to peel away, revealing smoother, less scarred skin underneath. Chemical peels can be useful for a number of different types of scars, but are typically more effective for mild to moderate scarring.
  • Topical treatments: at Sun & Skin Medical Centre, we have a range of the highest quality dermaceutical homecare products. Your skin therapist will be able to recommend the most appropriate products for you. Topical treatments typically work by hydrating and softening the skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of scars.
