Whilst there are a number of non-surgical methods available to reduce scar visibility, surgical scar reduction is typically the most effective means for reducing particularly prominent, complex or unsightly scarring.
Alternative non-surgical treatments include; Dermal Fillers, IPL, Chemical Peels or Topical treatments e.g. creams, silicone gels
Scar reduction treatments do not guarantee complete removal of the scar, but aim to make it less obvious. They can also help to reduce tightness caused by the scar tissue. The colour and type of your skin, your age and the type of scarring influence how much improvement you can expect.
Often a combination of treatments will be required to achieve the optimal outcome.
