- Laser skin resurfacing can be used to aid the improvement of skin texture and tone.
Scarring is almost always the result of a past wound, and can occur as a result of the healing process. Scars form when the healing does not occur in the way it should do, causing the skin to look and act slightly differently to the surrounding skin. Scars may be raised from the skin, such as hypertrophic or keloid scarring, or else indented, as is the case with atrophic scars.
To treat scarring, laser skin resurfacing can be used to aid the improvement of skin texture and tone. This can help raised scars lie flatter against the skin, or diminish the appearance of sunken scarrish. Alternatively, microneedling can help promote skin repair. Both of these treatments are available from the aesthetics team at Define Clinic in Beaconsfield, led by Dr Benji Dhillon.
