Your Guide to Effective Scar Removal in Dubai

Scar Removal Dubai

Scar-Removal

 

Scarring is a natural process of wound repairing. While recovering from an injury – be it a result of an accident, burn, surgery or acne – a scar will develop on your skin. Scars are a part of normal healing and can occur anywhere in any size and shape.

What causes scarring?

A scar occurs when multiple layers of the skin have been affected. In simple words, scars develop on the skin when the deeper layers of the skin are damaged by the injury. Damage to the superficial layer of the skin usually does not cause scarring.

A scar is not bad if it is small or in a location that is not exposed. But most of the scars caused by burn injuries, accidents, surgeries and acne are permanent and do not dissolve at their own. However, they may be made less visible. There are a few treatment options available that can help reduce the size of a scar and change its appearance.

Scar removal Dubai can be done with the help of a number of scar removal treatments. Read on to know your options.

Who is a candidate?

Anyone who is bothered by scarring caused due to any reason can benefit from scar enhancing treatment. Individuals that often seek dermatological help for scar removal in Dubai have either of these:

  • Acne scars
  • Burn scars
  • Trauma scars
  • Injury scars
  • Surgical scars

Why you should get Scar removal treatment:

The first thing that comes to mind with the term “scar removal” is clearing scars and lesions caused by trauma to skin. But there are several other goals of laser scar removal as well. It helps:

  • Eliminate stubborn scars
  • Improve appearance of skin in the treated areas
  • Even out skin tone and shrink large pores
  • Get rid of acne blemishes or scar marks left behind

Possible treatments for acne scars:

Some most commonly used methods for minimizing the appearance of scars include topical creams, ointments and gels, dermal fillers, skin resurfacing procedures and laser treatment.

  • Topical creams, ointments and gels: Both over the counter as well as prescription creams and ointments can be used to improve the appearance of scars caused by acne, cuts or other minor injuries or wounds. Consult a dermatologist and discuss with him if over the counter products will work for you or not. If not, he may suggest you some prescriptions containing steroids or certain antihistamine creams.
  • Dermal fillers: Dermal fillers are used to fill the scar depressions, especially in case of acne scars or deep surgical scars. Moderately deep scars caused by accidents or injuries may also be successfully treated with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are soft gels injected underneath the top layer of the skin to add volume to scar depressions and even out the skin texture.
  • Skin resurfacing procedures: Skin resurfacing procedures, such as Chemical Peels, and Microdermabrasion, are also used to improve the appearance of scars and make them less visible. All these techniques work by removing the damaged top most layer of the skin, revealing fresh and smoother skin underneath.

Recommended Treatment:

At Laser Skin Care Clinic, we recommend Laser Skin Resurfacing with Fractional CO2 Lasers for scar removal.

How to prepare for Scar Removal Dubai?

Follow these tips as you prepare for scar revision treatment and stay assured you will get the most out of it.

  • Don’t forget to share your medical history and medications with the doctor, especially if you have used Accutane for acne treatment in the last six months
  • If seeking scar removal from face, cleanse your face thoroughly with some antibacterial, oil free cleanser the night before treatment
  • If the scar is somewhere on body, such as neck, abdomen, back or chest, take shower and shave hair from the treatment area
  • Do not wear makeup or apply any cream/ lotion at the treatment site as you go to the clinic for the procedure

How Laser Skin Resurfacing is performed?

  • Laser Scar removal is performed on outpatient basis with topical anesthetic.
  • Using a handheld device, laser beam of a specific wavelength and intensity is glided along the scar.
  • The laser beam causes microscopic wounds at controlled rate in the scar tissues.
  • This triggers self-healing process which helps minimize the scar appearance.
  • It also resurfaces top layers of skin, revealing new and smooth skin underneath.
  • The laser also goes deeper into the skin targeting lower layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production.
  • Fractional CO2 Lasers are generally used for Scar Removal in Sharjah, Dubai and other UAE states.
  • At Laser Skincare Clinic we use DEKA Smartxide Fractional CO2 Laser system for treating all types of scar.

  • Don’t wash treated area for 6 to 8 hours. Even after that, avoid pouring water directly over it
  • Take prescribed pain management medicine immediately after the treatment
  • Applying antibiotic ointment to the treatment site as prescribed by the doctor

Hated for more than 20 years to see two indented scars on my forehead, which I got after falling from the stairs at the age of 5. I did not want to go for excision and the dermatologists had no other option for me. Went in for a consultation with Olimpia six months ago and today my forehead is scars less, courtesy Laser Skin Resurfacing. Thanks Olimpia, thanks lasers!

Sarah, Sharjah

I had a small, half inch depressed scar on my cheek which I got after cyst excision. I was eager to get the depression filled but non-invasively coz cyst excision experience was horrible. I consulted different dermatologists and surgeons but they all refused stating it was impossible to fill the scar depression without surgery. But Olimpia accepted the challenge and after just 4 sessions of Fractional CO2 Laser I had a small, half inch depressed scar on my cheek which I got after cyst excision. I was eager to get the depression filled but non-invasively coz cyst excision experience was horrible. I consulted different dermatologists and surgeons but they all refused stating it was impossible to fill the scar depression without surgery. But Olimpia accepted the challenge and after just 4 sessions of Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing, combined with PRP I have started noticing improvements. Anxiously waiting for my 5th session!

Yafiah, Al Ain

During my teens I got two piercing under my lower lip. Now after seven years, when I got them removed I was left with two glaring holes on my chin area. A friend of mine suggested me to see Olimpia of Laser Skin Care. And now after just 5 sessions of laser skin resurfacing, the piercing holes are completely gone. Could not be happier more.

The pain felt during the laser scar removal is minimal. Anesthetic creams are applied to numb down any feeling of discomfort. Generally the sensation felt is that of a rubber band snapping on the skin at the most.
The length of each procedure will vary depending on the individual case. However, these usually last for about half an hour to an hour.
There is usually no downtime with a laser scar removal procedure. Some redness and swelling may be felt at the skin for a bit of time but it does not stop a person from carrying out the usual routines of everyday life. In case of a Fractional CO2 procedure, it is better to rest for a couple of days.
Most people require multiple sessions for achieving the desired results with any procedure that may be used. The exact number of sessions needed depend on the procedure opted for, the individual’s requirements and how well he or she may be responding to the treatment. Only your doctor can give the exact count after taking all aspects into consideration.
Yes! Chemical peels are very useful in getting rid of the scars. These are in fact one of the more commonly used treatment options for mild scars.
