scar treatment

We offer a number of treatment modalities for scar revisions and stretch mark treatments that can be customized according to individual requirements.
How a scar is treated is dependent on a number of factors, including:
•    Where on the body is the scar?
•    What is the exact nature of the scar?
•    How long have you had the scar?
Treatments will most commonly involve radio-frequency, laser, and PDT at our practice.
Sessions are spaced at 1 monthly interval, and 3-8 sessions are required on average. The cost is approximately R2500/session (as a guideline).
Scar excision and other treatment modalities such as PRP (platelet rich plasma) may also be used.
I always combine scar treatments with an appropriate formula to further enhance results and healing. Such creams cost approximately R320 per tube/container.
It is also very important to remember that scars and stretch marks cannot be totally removed, only their appearance reduced and smoothed over time. Significant improvements in scar appearance can, however, be achieved.

IPL (skin type I-III)

Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL) uses a spectrum of light shined onto the skin to treat a variety of skin and vein issues. Because the light is concentrated and focused, IPL treatment does not damage surrounding tissue.
IPL is used for photo rejuvenation where longer wavelengths of light are applied to the skin in order to destroy old collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen, leading to firmer and softer skin. IPL is also used to treat scars and acne, pigmentation, freckles and non-cancerous skin lesions.
Clinical results for the use of IPL vary with skin type. Individuals with fair to light brown skin experience the best results from IPL. Individuals who tan easily have varied results, and IPL is not recommended for some individuals with dark skin. Talk to your doctor about whether IPL would be right for you.

Venus Viva (skin type I-VI)

Venus Viva is an all-in-one treatment delivering impressive efficacy through NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) and one-of-a-kind SmartScan technology.
Venus Viva creates micro-wounds in the inner layer of the skin for collagen stimulation and new skin to form. Acne scars will be lighter with lesser depression because when the new skin forms, it fills in the "holes".
As it uses Radio Frequency and not Laser, it is suitable for darker skins.

Retinol

Superficial acne scarring may be successfully treated with retinol because it encourages the production of collagen, which helps soften and smooth the surface of the skin.
