Scar Removal in Melbourne
Scar reduction is one of our primary focuses here at The DOC Clinic. Whether you’re dealing with the remnants of acne or keloid scarring from an injury, we understand that living with scars sometimes reveals more about us than we need or want to share. That’s why we offer a variety of treatments, including laser scar removal, to Melbourne patients wanting to ease some of the cosmetic stress of covering up. We hope to help you reveal and maintain your skin’s natural beauty, and to ultimately boost your confidence.
Dr Ed Omarjee works with the latest technological advancements in cosmetic treatments, including the exciting Fraxel® laser acne scars treatment, the Laser Genesis, and skin needling for acne scars with the Dermapen.
Scar Reduction Treatment Options:
Fraxel® Laser Scar Removal Treatment – Fraxel® scar removal uses fractional lasers to penetrate the top layers of the skin. This stimulates collagen production to boost the skin’s natural repair processes, helping to smooth out acne and surgical scars. Fraxel® before and after acne scars pictures testify to the impressive results this treatment can achieve.
Laser Genesis – We offer this YAG laser scar removal to Melbourne patients seeking a safe, effective and non-invasive way to reduce acne blemishes through boosted collagen production.
Subcision – A good option for depressed scar treatment, this minor surgical procedure uses a hypodermic needle to break the fibrotic strands attaching the scar to underlying tissue in order to diminish its appearance.
Skin Needling – Micro needling acne scars using the Dermapen or MDerma involves penetrating the top layers of skin to stimulate cell rejuvenation. Using the Dermapen for scars can be an efficient and effective way to soften their appearance.
Punch Biopsy – This involves excising the blemish, typically under local anaesthetic, with minimal pain and no downtime for the patient.
Dermabrasion – An intensive resurfacing treatment that involves surgical scraping of the skin.
Acne Medical Management – This aids acne scar reduction while the acne is still in its active state and can involve a variety of treatment options – including prescription-only medications.
Cosmeceutical Skin Care – Receive expert advice on the best skincare products for scar reduction.
Skin Peels – The exfoliating effect of a chemical peel encourages the growth of fresh new skin, which helps to reduce the appearance of blemishes.
Keloid Scarring Management – This can involve injecting anti-inflammatory drugs into the scar over the course of 2-3 treatments – though some patients may require more.
