Techniques We Use:
Post-Surgical Scars Treatment in Dubai is done via two procedures, including surgical and non-surgical.
Dermabrasion: Doctors remove the upper layer of skin by using a machine revealing the new, fresh, and less damaged underneath the skin. This exposed skin texture gets heal in less time.
Laser Resurfacing: Laser resurfacing is based on the concept of exposing new fresh skin deprived of any scar. High heat laser beams target the scar and further helps stimulate collagen production.
Excision: This is a minor surgery for scar reduction. Your doctor will make a small incision to remove the scar tissue and repair the wounds individually. This way, scars appear thinner, less noticeable.
Skin Graft or Flap Surgery: It’s the procedure where healthy skin is transplanted from one area to another. This surgery hides the scar more effectively and is suitable for handling large wounds or skin marks.
Z or W Plasty: This technique realigns the scar tissue by making “Z” or “W” shaped incisions. It can break long-scar into multiple ones that are less noticeable. You can consider this procedure for yourself when the excessive deep, big scar is to be treated.
Adhesive Tape: It’s a micro tape placed over the scar to stop forming a thick scar.
Steroids: They can be used as topical cream or injections for scar diminishing. However, injections are more effective than creams. Several sessions may be required.
Chemical Peels: Causes the upper skin surface to shed down, create space for younger cells to penetrate the upper layer. Medium to high-level peels is used under the guidance of a dermatologist depending upon your scar extent.
Soft Tissue Fillers: Maybe either from the patient’s fat or any artificial filler can fill out the depression left from scars.
