Often resulting from a traumatic time, self-harm scars are a physical manifestation of a difficult time for many people where they needed an outlet to deal with and overwhelming situation, negative feelings, or painful memories. However, the main issue with self-harm scars is that they remain long after their underlying cause has been addressed and appropriately dealt with.
What this means for many people is that they are left living with a reminder of a dark time in their life, which can, of course, not only hinder their recovery but also have an effect on their self-esteem as they are left answering unwelcome questions about the cause of the marks.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Scar treatments have come a long way in recent years, allowing clinics like ours to treat self-harm scars in the same way that we would treat any other type of scarring. Having successfully treated thousands of patients in the decades we have been operating, we know the optimum combination of treatments to deliver you the best possible results.
No matter how tempting it may be to go down the route of home treatments or using over-the-counter products, it is these decades of expertise that allow clinics to deliver great improvements in the look of self-harm scars, and these cannot be matched by any products you can apply yourself at home.
If you want to see a significant long-term change in the colour and texture of your self-harm scars, then it’s time to book a consultation with one of our skin experts. No matter what stage of the healing process your scars are currently at, they will be able to advise you on the best combination of treatments to significantly reduce the appearance of your self-harm scars until you no longer feel the need to cover them up.
When it comes to scar removal treatments, we offer a range of options. Because self-harm scars are no different from any other type of scarring, all of our scar removal treatments are suitable for improving their appearance. While one of our skin experts will advise you on the best combination for your specific concerns, the scar removal treatments we offer includes the derma white treatment, the marine peel treatment, collagen induction therapy, and advanced dermabrasion as well as specific skin healing products from our Zaheda Skincare range.
