Testimonials
“My family is prone to skin tags and moles. I’ve always been conscious of mine because they’re on my neck and visible above my collar. The therapist treated more than 10 spots within an hour. The results were immediate, minimal discomfort and at a fraction of the cost I would have paid elsewhere. Within a week there was absolutely no sign of them and zero scarring. I am extremely impressed with the professional and knowledgeable staff and would recommend them any day!”

SCARS

A scar results from the biological process of wound repair in the skin and is a natural part of healing.

Scar tissue is the same type of protein (i.e. collagen) as the tissue that it replaces, but the fibre composition of the replacement protein is usually of inferior functional quality; and the alignment of these fibres is offset.

Types:

Hypertrophic Scars: occur when the body overproduces collagen, which causes the scar to be raised above the surrounding skin. Hypertrophic scars take the form of a red raised lump on the skin.  

Keloid scars: are a more serious form of hypertrophic scarring, because they can grow indefinitely. This type of scarring can occur on anyone, but they are most common in dark-skinned people. They can be caused by surgery, accident, acne or, sometimes, body piercings. In some people, keloid scars form spontaneously.

Atrophic scars: takes the form of a sunken recess in the skin, which has a pitted appearance. These are caused when underlying structures supporting the skin, such as fat or muscle, are lost.

Stretch marks: Stretch marks (technically called striae) are also a form of scarring. These are caused when the skin is stretched rapidly (for instance during pregnancy significant weight gain, or adolescent growth spurts)

Hyper-pigmentation: Hyper-pigmentation is a condition where elevated levels of the pigment melanin accumulate in the skin. This creates the appearance of freckle-like spots or blotches. Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanocytes (the cells that produce the melanin pigment) begin to proliferate at the site of injury, or when an existing population of melanocytes begins to produce excess amounts of melanin. Both of these events can result from trauma/ injury

Hypo-Pigmentation: Contrasting with hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation occurs when melanocytes are depleted from the injury site or lose their ability to produce melanin. This is often the case in areas of skin that have been replaced with scar tissue, which tends to have a light, pinkish appearance.  

Erythema (Permanent Redness): Erythema is a condition in which small capillaries near the surface of the skin become damaged or permanently dilated. This condition presents as a region of redness in the skin. Occasionally, individual capillaries are visible.
