Scars are a natural part of the body’s healing process

A scar results from the biologic process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues. Most wounds, except for very minor ones, result in some degree of scarring. Scars can result from accidents, diseases, skin conditions such as acne, or surgeries.

How Do Scars Form?

Scars form when the dermis (deep, thick layer of skin) is damaged. The body forms new collagen fibers (a naturally occurring protein in the body) to mend the damage, resulting in a scar. The new scar tissue will have a different texture and quality than the surrounding tissue. Scars form after a wound is completely healed.

There are different kinds of scars. Most scars are flat and pale. However, in cases when the body produces too much collagen, scars can be raised. Raised scars are called hypertrophic scars or keloid scars. Both of these kinds of scars are more common in younger and dark-skinned people. The most common scars we treat at Skinroom are those resulting from Acne and Chicken Pox.

The two main professional treatments we offer for scarring is SkinPen Micro-Needling and Skin Chemical Peeling. Deeper scars require longer courses of treatments and patience to give your skin time to repair and remodel.

Scar Treatments

Our absolute hero treatment for acne scarred skin. SkinPen is a minimally invasive procedure which delivers incredible results, helping to improve the appearance of scar tissue, lines and wrinkles and thickened sun damaged skin. It works by stimulating the body’s natural wound healing response. When we cause trauma to the skin it releases cytokines and growth factors that lead to the formation of new collagen and elastin.  This results in the skins thickness being increased by up to 80% smoothing scars, visibly reducing stretch marks and erasing wrinkles. The skin then becomes thicker, plumper and more youthful. We start each treatment with an Environ Cool peel to soften and prepare your skin. A topical anaesthetic is then applied to numb the skin for treatment. The Skin Pen procedure is then performed to your chosen areas, where the depth of the needles will be tailored to your skin needs. After the Micro-Needling is finished, you will relax under the Dermalux LED light to boost your results and reduce any downtime. A post procedure pack is included.

Building on the Skins rejuvenation in the introductory scarring treatment, we introduce our most advanced chemical peel, also known as the “glow peel’. Classed as a “half Jessner” peel, it contains resorcinol, lactic and salicylic acid to resurface the skin and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. This peel can be customised in strength by the numbers of layers applied to break down rough, scaly or hardened skin. You may see some visible peeling with this peel, and you will need to avoid water for at least 24 hours after the treatment, due to the self-neutralising properties. Therefore, we recommend you factor this into your social calendar, which can be discussed in your initial consultation at SkinRoom. Dermalux Boost and Post Treatment Pack included.
