Lesions and scarring of the skin can create feelings of inferiority and impact self-confidence. Scarring is a tremendous issue, specifically when it is a byproduct of other skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Other than common skin conditions that can lead to scarring, normal injuries or trauma to the skin can also cause significant damage.
What Causes Scarring?
Skin scarring occurs when the skin’s normal healing process is disrupted or when there is damage to the skin’s connective tissue. Some common causes of scarring include wound healing, acne scarring, infections, genetics and chronic skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema, can lead to scarring over time. In addition to these causes, allergies can also be a contributing factor which can cause scarring, which can vary from person to person. Scarring can appear anywhere on the body, although the most common areas of scarring on the skin appear on:
- The face
- Hands and feet
- The scalp
- Shoulders and arms
There are some professional treatment choices that can improve scarring. The results vary for each individual and the outcome depends upon the degree of scarring as well.
How To Treat Scarring?
Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics provides an array of solutions for those who want to correct visible scarring on their skin that impacts their confidence around other people. Some of the more common choices that we recommend for individuals are:
- Skin needling: This option is not painful and promotes the regeneration of skin cells for improving the appearance of the superficial layer of the skin. It provides long-term results with a great deal of satisfaction.
- Microdermabrasion: This is another treatment that encourages the regeneration of new skin cells to minimise the appearance of fine scarring and blemishes on the surface of the skin. By improving your tone and complexion, amazing results can be achieved.
- Cosmetic Injections: These are perfect for improving the look and feel of the skin following any scarring injury. They can improve the ageing effects that scarring often brings as well. Revitalising the skin and increasing hydration can make it appear plumper and fuller, fading old scars and minimising that ‘withered’ appearance.
