How to get rid of scars depends on the nature of your scarring and the extent of your scarring.
Getting rid of scars effectively requires a professional to assess your scars to understand which treatment is appropriate for you.
In some instances surgical scar revision will be required, in others non-surgical techniques such as laser, IPL and micro-needling will suffice.
At the Cadogan Clinic, our team of scar specialists are pulled from the full range of specialities, ranging from dermatologists to plastic surgeons, to burns and scarring specialists.
There are many ways to get rid of C section scars either surgically or non surgically.
Generally, surgical treatments are much more effective and provide patients with faster, more long term results whilst non-surgical methods (e.g. laser, IPL) can be much slower although still helpful. We always advise individuals to consult a specialist surgeon (such as those at the Cadogan Clinic) beforehand who will take you through the scar revision treatment and the aftercare process.
A scar from a C section can be major so it’s advised to consult with a plastic surgeon, such as those available at the Cadogan Clinic for comprehensive advice surrounding your scar treatment.
The best way to get rid of a spot or acne scar is through a light, laser or microneedling treatment, these work by replenishing the skin’s collagen and allowing the skin to relayer much faster than any natural treatment would allow.
There are also a variety of natural methods for spot scar removal. Cleansing products and moisturisers are methods of spot scar reduction, retinol (vitamin A) for example has resurfacing abilities that can help with scar healing and sebum reduction although many of these are deemed as much slower acting when compared to surgical removal.
Individuals wishing to find out more about spot scar removal should get in touch with us at the Cadogan Clinic via the contact form on our website. We offer comprehensive advice to individuals on the various forms of treatment available, alongside information on our aftercare services.
The best scar treatment depends on the scar, but for larger bigger scars it is often surgical scar revision, designed to minimize a scar so that it blends in with the surrounding skin tone.
These are generally much faster acting than non-surgical methods and provide long-lasting, reliable results. There are many creams out there designed to treat scars too, however, these are far less effective than surgical scar revision and should only be used secondary alongside a surgical treatment. For information on any scar treatments available, consult an expert who will be able to guide you towards the scar treatment that’s best for your skin.
Vaseline, bio oil, Invisiscar and aloe vera are all creams that can help heal scars after a surgery. No cream will heal a scar instantly, however over time and with consistent use, a positive step toward fading the scars will be made.
At the Cadogan Clinic, we provide individuals with comprehensive advice surrounding scar fading treatments. To find out more or to address any queries or concerns, get in touch with us via the contact form on our website where a specialist will be able to help.
