Face scars are sometimes a painful reminder of the past and can have a lasting impact on an individual’s self-esteem and confidence. There are many factors that can leave a face scar, including acne, accidents, injuries, and traumas to different facial features like the nose, eyes, cheeks, or chin.
Fortunately, we are living in a world where advanced medical techniques used in modern face scar treatment clinics can treat and reduce the appearance of face scars. These treatments include:
Silicone gel sheet
Silicone gel sheets are one of the effective face treatments offered at The Esthetic Clinics. It is probably one of the most common and effective scar treatment techniques used to get rid of or reduce the appearance of scars. Many people who consistently use this technique have reported significant improvement in the appearance of scars.
They are soft and flexible sheets that create a protective barrier over the scar to lock in moisture and aid in a smoother texture. They have also been proven effective in regulating collagen production, which, in turn, helps to flatten and reduce the appearance of the scar.
Laser therapy can only be performed by a skin specialist like Dr. Rinky Kapoor for optimal results and minimal complications. During this procedure, a qualified technician uses a laser to target the beam of light directly at the scar area. This stimulates collagen production in the skin and breaks down the skin tissues.
Laser therapy is often used to treat raised scars like keloids and has minimal downtime, which makes it a suitable option for those looking for an effective and convenient face scar treatment without having to undergo invasive procedures.
Microdermabrasion involves removing the top layer of dead skin to reveal new, fresh skin underneath. It is a mechanical exfoliation technique that helps promote cell turnover and improve the texture of the skin.
As a facial scar treatment, microdermabrasion can help exfoliate the dead scar skin, making the scar less noticeable and improving its appearance. For optimal results, the patient needs to schedule a couple of sessions for the procedure.
Chemical peels are another popular treatment for facial skin. As the name suggests, the procedure involves “peeling” off the top layer of the skin to leave smoother, even-toned skin. How it works is that the skin specialist applies a chemical solution to the affected area, which exfoliates the skin to give the desired results.
For facial scars, chemical peel procedures can help flatten the scar and make it less noticeable. There are different types of peels that the practitioner can recommend based on her assessment of your skin and your expectations for the end results.
Importance of caring for scars
Proper wound care, or caring for the scars, is a crucial part of the procedure before, during, and after the treatments. It is important to keep the wound clean and dry to prevent further potential risks like infections and boost the healing process.
After consulting with a skin specialist, he will give you directions on how to care for the wound. This may include cleaning the wound area gently with mild soap and clean water, applying an antibiotic ointment, and covering it with a sterilized bandage.
