Scars

Scars occur on the body as a natural response during wound healing and repair. At Cosmos Clinic, the unsightly appearance of scars can be reduced and minimised with a combination of ProFractional laser, Platelet rich plasma (PRP) Dermal Fillers and fat transfer for optimal results.

The Treatment

The Combination of ProFractional laser, Platelet rich plasma (PRP), Dermal Fillers and fat transfer are used for optimal results.

Scars can be treated with a ProFractional Laser and platelet rich plasma to stimulate the formation of new collagen. Topical anaesthetic is applied to minimise discomfort.

Dermal fillers and fat transfer help to fill any holes left by the scar as well as stimulate new collagen.

The Results

New collagen production can take up to 3-6 months for the full results, so expect a gradual improvement in acne scarring over 3 – 6 months.

Skin will appear dry and red for up to 1 week after the treatment. Complications with laser treatments are rare and include mild blisters and discolouration of the skin.

Top Scars Questions

What is Scar treatment using Fractional Lasers?

Fractional Laser Resurfacing treats a small “fraction” of the skin while leaving intact undamaged skin around each treated area. This acts as a barrier and reservoir for rapid healing. “Fractional” Laser Resurfacing is a technology which delivers results similar to that of deep chemical peels or ablative laser resurfacing. The benefit of this form of scar removal is that the procedure is without the discomfort and lengthy healing period that other scar treatments have. These include surgical treatments and surgical methods of removal such as Scar Revision Surgery. All traditional resurfacing methods treat the entire skin surface, to obtain a significant, “permanent” result. The entire top (epidermal) layer of skin is damaged or removed, creating a visible wound and a loss of the skins protective function.



How do Fractional Lasers work?

Fractional Laser Resurfacing with the Profile Sciton Laser uses an invisible laser beam which is strongly absorbed by water. The beam is less than 100 millionths of an inch in diameter (about the size of a human hair). The beam passes through the dry, outer layer of skin and wounds the underlying collagen. Nearby undamaged cells immediately move into this microscopically damaged area and heal the wounded area. During each treatment, millions of these microscopic areas are created, but most of the skin remains undamaged – allowing for rapid healing. Further collagen remodeling and some skin tightening takes place over the next 3-6 months. Because fractional laser resurfacing emulates “traditional” ablative procedures, many conditions may be treated with either method. Fractional Laser Resurfacing has the advantage of ease of treatment with minimal discomfort and downtime. 110316-COSCLI-scars-00
