Scars & Scar Removal

Home Therapies:

At Skin Renewal we offer traditional therapy such as topical products containing Centella Asciatica to improve scars.

In Office Therapies:

At Skin Renewal we offer combinations of exfoliation, light and laser therapies such as Laser Genesis, Pearl rejuvenation, Dermapen Skin Needling, and Carboxytherapy to improve the appearance of scars. As each patient's case is different; we will tailor a treatment program specifically for you and your circumstances. A highly professional team led by a medical doctor assesses every patient and an appropriate combination treatment is recommended dependant on expectations, budget, time and medical conditions.

Skin Renewal Tip

The Laser Genesis™ procedure uses a revolutionary pulse width to shrink the vessels causing the redness in scars and stops abnormal growth that is implicated in keloids scars. Laser genesis™ offers predictable, repeatable results for scars with minimal discomfort and no downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions

When the skin is cut or broken, the body mobilizes a wound repair process. The blood vessels constrict and clots form to minimize blood loss. A scab, or hardened crust, forms over the top of the wound. The scab acts like a natural covering to protect the area while the body continues the repair process. Tiny fibres of collagen fill in the hole and eventually reconnect the ends. By the time the scab naturally falls off, much of the initial repair has been finished. However, the area is far from healed. Depending upon the size, depth and location of the injury, it can take months to years for the skin to return to normal strength.

Scar formation is a natural part of the healing process. A scar forms from excess amounts of collagen in the wound as the body attempts a repair. Many scars eventually fade. But they tend not to go away completely. Generally, the larger the wound, the longer it takes to heal and the greater the chance of a visible scar.

On average most scars take at least one year to fade. However, researchers have found a way to lessen their severity by injecting the drug, BOTOX® near the site of the wound. When a person experiences another kind of injury, like a broken bone, doctors place the area in a sling to immobilize the limb and allow the body to heal. BOTOX works in a similar fashion. When injected into muscles near the wound, the drug prevents the muscles from pulling on the wound site, allowing the area to heal without excessive disruption.

Studies have shown BOTOX is effective in reducing scar formation from facial wounds. Researchers still need to determine if the drug may be effective for other places on the body. The sooner after an injury the patient receives BOTOX, the better the results.

Review -Stretch mark removal
Reviewed on 4 October 2018 by Fara Ahmed

Today I had my first session of carboxytherapy and laser genesis for stretch marks, and I must say I am so so happy and pleased with this skin clinic and I will definitely be coming back. My therapist who did the treatment on me (Kovanna Naidu) was absolutely wonderful and made me feel extremely comfortable. Carboxytherapy is a little painful, but the pain was manageable and it subsides the very minute you are done and the laser genesis is basically pain free. Even my initial consultation with Dr. Michelle Blom was a pleasant experience, she is really nice and warm and makes you feel at ease.

Overall just a really good experience.
