Scars

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.

Scars 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.

Testimonials

"AS CUTTING EDGE AS LONDON
I view myself lucky to have a clinic like Health Aesthetics in Farnham as you would only expect to find a similar one in London. Rekha Tailor who is a qualified doctor together with a professional team of staff give you the latest up to date treatments. I am very impressed that when I have only just read about a new advanced treatment in the newspaper, health and aesthetics is already providing them. My own experience has been wonderful with friendly professional and honest advice, the treatments make me feel much better about the way I look without making me look as though anything has been done.Victoria (59)"
"ROSACEA – KINDNESS AND EMPATHY
I cannot recommend Rekha and Hannah enough. I had no confidence when I first visited the clinic with rosacea but was treated with kindness and empathy. A fantastic experience and now my skin looks great!"
"ULTHERAPY BY JO (48)
I had noticed that my face had started to droop and that my jawline was looking heavy. I had seen Ultherapy treatment in a magazine article. This sounded something that could work for me, so I looked into it a little more.I have been visiting health + aesthetics for several years.  On one of my visits to the clinic, Dr Tailor advised me that I would benefit from this treatment and this would help alleviate the concerns that I have about my skin.  I had many questions, for which Dr Tailor answered in detail.  I had previously thought about a facelift but I was put off by the potential for scars. Dr Tailor suggested Ultherapy will give me great natural results, with out any scars or barely any down time.On the day of the treatment, I was made to feel very comfortable.  I felt so relaxed, I almost feel asleep. The treatment took about an hour. Afterwards, there was minimal swelling and no bruising. This meant I could return to work instantly.Results were evident within 2 to 3 months. 6 months on from the treatment, I am really impressed with the results and glad that I chose this treatment.  I really do look good and feel great.I have recommended the clinic to many of my friends who have also had treatments and are also very happy.

"MY SKIN HAS IMPROVED SO MUCH
I have been so pleased with my treatment at the clinic. My skin has improved so much, which has been noticed by others!!Friendly staff, very positive experience.Katherine (45)"
"BOTOX & FILLERS – BENEFITS TO BE OUTSIDE OF LONDON
I just moved to Farnham from London and I was concerned that I would not have local access to the newest and highest quality treatments as I did in London. In fact, I now benefit from equal, if not better treatments that are much more professionally administered. I have never had such good results with both filler and botox as I have had with Dr. Rekha Tailor.Susan (57)"
