Treatment and removal of scars depends largely on their type, location and age. Currently, there are a lot of methods that can help you effectively remove scars. In most cases, however, it is best to combine different therapies that give the best results.
Invasive or non-invasive methods of scar removal?
Especially when the scar is fresh, good effects can be achieved by using pharmacological agents that contain allantoin, heparin or onion extract. Increasingly, formulations with silicone, in the form of creams or plasters are also used in these types of therapies often become an element of compression therapy, especially in the treatment of keloids and hypertrophic scars. The pressure exerted on such changes may limit their growth and accelerate maturation.
Keloids and hypertrophic scars respond well to therapies using steroids, so it is worth consulting this matter with a dermatologist. In many cases, patients are also recommended cryotherapy, which involves deep scar freezing and providing fantastic laser therapy effects, combined with micro-entrainment or administering platelet-rich plasma.
If no other methods are effective, or if the scar is very large, surgical intervention is the only option. The scar is cut and sewn again using a tension-free technique. It is necessary to remember, however, that when it comes to keloids and hypertrophic scars, the majority of patients experience a relapse.
When doctors deal with extremely extensive scars, caused for example by burns and chemical substances, the best solution is a skin graft from other parts of the body. However, these is extremely complicated and painful treatment, which is associated with a very long period of convalescence. In many situations it is worth undergoing, because the effects are amazing. The best example of this is the story of Katie Piper, whose career as a model and television presenter was interrupted by one dramatic event. As a result of acid being spilt on her face at the request of a former boy, Katie’s world was ruined. The scorched and practically skinless woman’s face looked drastic, but thanks to the efforts of doctors and, among others, multiple skin transplants, today she looks really good.
Invasive methods may therefore also bring the intended results, but they are not intended for everyone. Some patients who are prone to scarring even after minor injuries should decide to use other methods to remove them.
Removal of acne scars
First we have to take care of the acne itself to even think about removing acne scars. If you do not do it, the treatment performed may be to some extent unsuccessful, but they will also affect the symptoms of this disease. In the first place, acne should be muted, for example with the help of drugs prescribed to us by a dermatologist, or pyruvic acid. The doctor decides which method is right for you, of course.
Acne scars can be effectively eliminated by laser therapy. In the case of deeper scars, it is worth combining the laser application with giving the patient the platelet-rich plasma, which significantly accelerates skin regeneration. Shallow scars caused by acne can also be removed with a laser, but a much cheaper solution is to use microneedle mesotherapy (dermorollers).
Removal of burn scars
Burn scars are among the most complicated in terms of their treatment and leveling. The choice of the appropriate method depends on many factors, such as the age of the scar, its size, depth and extent of burns. Scar removal in many cases is unfortunately very difficult, painful and long-lasting.
Usually, combined therapies are best suited to the individual patient’s needs. Their effects are really good, but you have to remember that you cannot completely get rid of this scar. The methods used to reduce scars, however, allow them to be smoothed, shallower and unification of the structure, so that their appearance is very similar to how our natural, undamaged skin looks like.
Removal of scars after cuts
In most cases, scars resulting from cuts are quite shallow. Therefore, a few laser therapy or microneedle mesotherapy therapy sessions can be enough to achieve the intended effect. However, if the cut was deep, we usually have a hypertrophic scar that requires a little more attention from us. Then, the most effective method of scar removal is the use of an innovative Er:Yag iPixel laser. Unfortunately, other lasers, such as Co², may in this case only worsen the state of burn scars.
Removal of scars after surgery and cesarean section
The scar created by the operation or cesarean section is a combination of two fragments of the skin. For this reason, it is hard and in the first place requires proper softening and stretching. In the process of removing this type of scar, it is worth starting with Endermolift treatment sessions, which will perfectly prepare it for further therapy. When the desired effect is achieved, you can start working on the scar using a laser. Although the results of such treatments are already really good, it is also worth thinking about the additional stimulation of collagen production and skin regeneration by providing platelet rich plasma. The number of treatment session after which we notice a positive change in the appearance of the scar, may vary. However, 4-6 laser treatments are in this case the minimum.
It should be remembered that post-surgical scars and caesarean section have discolorations, most often red. This defect can also be compensated by using IPL treatment carried out using a Dye-VL head. As a result, the colour of the scar is aligned with the colour of the dermis, which makes it much less visible.

All treatments are preceded by a medical or cosmetological consultation in order to select the appropriate treatment.
New! Carbosyntherapy Julie Awarded with many prizes
Carbosyntherapy is a procedure of aesthetic medicine using carbon dioxide and is a universal treatment which can be used on the face and body. Carbon dioxide is inserted under the skin with a thin needle, which aims to improve blood microcirculation, nutrition of tissues, reduction of adipose tissue and firming of the skin.
Controlling skin damage is one of the ways to stimulate skin remodeling, used in cosmetic procedures and aesthetic medicine treatments. Interruption of the skin’s continuity favors the emergence of local inflammation and increased synthesis of collagen fibers. One of the most-chosen treatments of this type is microneedle mesotherapy. It is an effective therapy inducing the synthesis of new collagen fibers, which leads to skin rejuvenation and reduction of certain skin defects. Most often, microneedle mesotherapy is performed on the face, neck and cleavage, as well as the scalp; other possible locations are areas of the body that require skin regeneration.
Laser removal of scars and stretch marks is the most efficient and effective method of leveling, reducing or completely eliminating the problem of scars and stretch marks. The only action method available is the Er:YAG fractional ablation laser or CO² laser. Although you can find scar removal treatments on the market using an ablation laser, the effects do not meet customer expectations, due to too delicate action. Scars and stretch marks are a deep skin defect that require controlled damage and skin remodeling, thus leading to controlled inflammation in both the dermis and epidermis, so that regeneration can take place in these places. Unfortunately, this effect is only achieved by ablation.

Vampire facelift, a procedure with the use of platelet rich plasma is one of the most effective and the most natural rejuvenating treatments, recognized for it’s high safety. The use of platelet-rich plasma allows stimulation of natural regenerative processes and comprehensive biostimulation of skin cells. The use of platelet-rich plasma obtained from a patient’s blood sample allows obtaining a safe and very effective preparation, used without fear of allergic reaction. Vampire lifting is therefore an excellent treatment for people with allergies who cannot undergo rejuvenating treatments using synthetic preparations. In addition to full biocompatibility, platelet-rich plasma is recognized for its great effectiveness. After blood centrifugation, a blood-derived preparation rich in platelets, growth factors and unique proteins – fibrin, fibronectin and vitronectin – can be obtained. This composition of ingredients makes the platelet-rich plasma material perfectly stimulating the work of fibroblasts, which translates into advanced skin regeneration. The treatment with platelet-rich plasma stimulates collagen synthesis, stimulates the multiplication and growth of epidermal cells, as well as microcirculation of the blood, improving skin oxygenation.
