A scar is a deposition of fibrous tissue that leaves a mark left on your skin, usually after an injury heals.
What kind of scars do we take care?
All kinds of scars are treated at Everlast. These include:
Atrophic scars – Atrophic acne scars can appear flat or sunken, and sometimes look like a hole in the skin. Examples: chickenpox, cystic acne, or extensive ultraviolet damage.
Hypertrophic scars – are raised, firm scars that grow above the surface of the skin. Examples: cuts, surgery, burns or even acne.
Keloid scars – This is also a raised scar. The main difference from a hypertrophic scar is that they can grow outside the wound area.
Striae Distensae (Stretch marks) – Stretch marks are also a form of scarring. These are caused when the skin is stretched rapidly, like pregnancy or rapid weight gain. Examples: Striae Rubrae, Striae Alba
Scar management best works when treatments are combined. Lasers, cryotherapy, focused ultrasound, radiofrequency, acoustic waves, electromagnetic fields, injectables, collagen induction treatment, topical and minor surgeries. These are just few of the treatments one can opt for at EWMC for an effective and reliable results. EWMC also outlines a diet program to prevent scars or minimize their appearance.
