Scar Removal in Surrey

Scars can be caused by surgery, trauma, or conditions such as acne. They can also develop due to pregnancy, weight gain and growth (stretch marks).

Many people seek treatment for scars since they can be unsightly, restrict movement, or they can be painful or itchy. Some people are also prone to the development of keloid or hypertrophic scars, which they may feel particularly self-conscious about.

Scars can be treated in a number of different ways. At health + aesthetics we have a lot of experience in this area and will be able to advise you on the best option for you.

Scar Removal in Surrey Treatment Info

Some scars do not heal flat and become lumpy and larger than the original wound. These are known as keloid scars.
When the skin is broken the body produces collagen to aid the healing process. In some people too much collagen is produced, which causes the scar to become large and raised.

Keloid scars can appear anywhere on the body. They can be reddish in colour, itchy and occasionally painful. They can also be disfiguring and cause embarrassment.
Keloid scars are more common in African and Indian communities.

The different types of scars cannot be treated by the same method. You will need a consultation to assess the scar and we will be able to advise you about the best possible treatment.

There are a variety of different methods which can be used to treat scars, all of which will result in a dramatic improvement to the appearance.

Most of the treatments (apart from dermal fillers and corticosteroid injections) work by stimulating the skin to produce new collagen and elastin. This improves the scars as well as the overall quality of the skin.

The different treatments that can be used to improve scars include:

  • Fractionated CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser
  • EndyMed Intensif Radiofrequency treatment
  • Dermapen (Micro-needling) treatment
  • Rioblush Carboxytherapy
  • PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) ‘Dracula’ Therapy
  • Chemical Peels
  • ZO Medical Skincare
  • Dermal Fillers
  • Corticosteroid Injections

This type of treatment works best on pitted scars and will help the scar to become smaller, tighter and flatter. Laser therapy stimulates the production of collagen, tightens existing collagen in the tissues and re-surfaces the skin.
You will need a course of 3-5 treatments at 6 weekly intervals.

This type of treatment will work best on pitted scars and stretch marks. It will help the scar to become smaller, tighter and flatter. Radiofrequency treatment will stimulate the production of collagen and will tighten existing collagen in the tissues.
You will need a course of 3-5 treatments at 6 weekly intervals.

Micro-needling treatment will also work best on pitted scars. It will help the scar to become smaller, tighter and flatter. The treatment works by stimulating collagen production.

You will need a course of 5 treatments at 6 weekly intervals.

This type of treatment is excellent for improving the appearance of stretch marks. It will help the stretch marks to become smaller, tighter and flatter. It works by stimulating the production of collagen.

You will need a course of 10-12 treatments at 1-2 weekly intervals.

This type of treatment will work best on general scars and will also aid healing. It will help the scar to become smaller and tighter by stimulating the production of collagen in the skin.
You will need a course of 3-5 treatments at 6 weekly intervals.

This type of treatment will also work best on general scars. It will help the scar to become smaller and tighter. The treatment will stimulate the production of collagen and resurface the skin.

The ZO medical skincare range is very effective at treating pigmented scars. These products contain prescription medication and are only available from a qualified doctor, such as Dr Tailor at health + aesthetics.

Dermal fillers will help to lift the scar and are therefore an excellent treatment for pitted scars. This is a single treatment but it will need to be repeated at least annually.

This type of treatment is used to treat keloid and hypertrophic scars.
You will need a course of at least 3 treatments at 6 weekly intervals.

Stretch marks can be treated by a variety of methods. These include Rioblush Carboxytherapy, Endymed Intensif radiofrequency treatment and Dermapen (micro-needling) treatment. These will all result in the stretch mark looking flatter, tighter and better.
The stretch marks cannot be completely removed but will be dramatically improved through treatment.

Corticosteroid injections can be used to treat keloid and hypertrophic scars, which will result in the scar flattening and looking better. The scar cannot be completely removed but will be dramatically improved. You will need at least three treatments at 6 weekly intervals.

Most of the treatments work by stimulating the formation of new collagen in the skin. This natural process takes time, so results will usually only start to appear around 3 months after the first treatment.

You will then continue to see improvement for up to 6-8 months.

In the case of dermal fillers you will see immediate results. These will improve for 2-4 weeks after treatment.

Results can also be enhanced by using cosmeceutical anti-ageing skincare as well as high level, broad spectrum sun protection to reduce photo-damage.

Most of these treatments work by causing a controlled injury. This stimulates a healing response and ultimately the production of new collagen and elastin.
People differ in the way that they respond to the healing process. Some people will produce less collagen and elastin than others. Therefore it is difficult to predict the exact results of each treatment. However, the vast majority of our patients, who visit the clinic from throughout Surrey and Hampshire, report excellent results from their scar treatments.

"ALEVERE WEIGHT LOSS BY CLAIRE – BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE!
Ever since I can remember I have been overweight and unhappy with the way that I look. I have tried all types of diets over the years and nothing has ever worked for me. When I found out about Alevere and how it was monitored by a doctor I knew this would be different and was excited to find out more.My consultation was very informative and gave me lots of reassurance and confidence in myself to get down to a healthy weight. I lost 3 stone in 5 months and feel like a completely different person, I never thought I would ever lose weight or feel better about myself but this diet has changed my life and I am so grateful. The staff made me feel so comfortable and I knew that they were always around if I needed support which was a big motivation during my journey! Best decision I have ever made!Charlotte (28)Specialist skin, laser and body clinic, health + aesthetics, Farnham, Surrey Alevere therapy, weight loss, body contouringSpecialist skin, laser and body clinic, health + aesthetics, Farnham, Surrey Alevere therapy, weight loss, body contouring"
"PRP HAIR TREATMENT – I WAS ABSOLUTELY BLOWN AWAY BY THE RESULTI’m 23 and I noticed early stage hair loss and wanted to act on it soon to avoid any baldness. I did some research online into the topic and heard about PRP therapy. Unfortunately, there were no clinics providing such a treatment where I live, so I started looking in Surrey and London and found health + aesthetics in Farnham at the end. It felt comforting that there is a real doctor and not a beauty therapist delivering such treatments and I had more trust in her.I found it easy to book my consultation and appointments and my first impression was great. The website was slick and informative, had videos and proper information about my treatment. The clinic was easy to find and when I entered it seemed so clean and pristine. At the beginning, I felt embarrassed about my problem but everyone was professional and kind from the receptionist to the doctor, that my embarrassment just vanished.Specialist skin, laser and body clinic, health + aesthetics, Farnham, Surrey PRP herapy hair lossSo, I had a PRP therapy for the first time with RioBlush (for free offered by Dr Tailor, which was a nice touch). RioBlush felt bubbly and PRP was a bit scratchy but not too painful and it’s only for a couple of minutes anyway. Within a week or so, my hairline started to thicken up so I was absolutely blown away by the quick turnaround. Then I went back to the clinic for repeat treatments a couple of times and the outcome has been great.If I had to summarise the overall experience in one word it would definitely be professionalism. Everything was immaculate, neat and clean which is really important if you think about injections and chances for cross-infections in general.I would definitely recommend the clinic to anyone who shares my situation in being ‘folliclely-challenged’ :). All in all, I’m more confident and have a peace of mind that I don’t have to worry about this for a long time. "

ALEVERE WEIGHT LOSS – A TEAM OF DEDICATED PROFESSIONALS

I started the Alevere weight reduction programme being 5 stones (31.75 kg) overweight. The process was supervised by Dr R Tailor starting with a medical examination and assessment of my response to the diet. I was advised that I could achieve my target weight in 18 weeks. This was exactly correct and in addition to regular consultations with Dr Tailor I was supported throughout by a team of dedicated consultants who monitored my progress, gave ongoing dietary advice, and applied the integral ultrasound treatment which enhances fat loss.The results have been literally amazing and I am now at a weight (and shape) I’ve not experienced since my early 20s, (I’m now 62.) The H & A team have been crucial in this process through their support, knowledge and encouragement. I have no hesitation in recommending them and the Alevere programme in particular.Ian (62)"
