What Are Scars?
Caused by an injury to the skin and commonly occurring in those who have acne, scars are a natural part of the body’s healing process. Following the loss of supporting tissue like collagen, scar tissue differs in both colour and texture from the surrounding skin. How a scar looks will depend on how new it is, where it is, and the type of scar it is. The appearance of scars can also vary depending on your skin tone and your individual healing response.
Common Types of Scarring
• Atrophic Scars: Due to the loss of fat and collagen, they appear as sunken scars and often have a pitted appearance. Atrophic scars are most commonly associated with acne and chicken pox, although those are not their only causes.
• Hypertrophic Scars: These scars are the ones most of us would recognise as typical scars, with a raised look resulting from the overproduction of collagen during the healing process.
• Keloid Scars: An excessive form of scarring which often grows beyond the original injury site. They can also occur as a reaction to body piercings, alongside the usual causes of scars, and are far more common in individuals with darker skin tones.

I have been having microdermabrasion treatments at the laser treatment clinic for stretchmarks on my chest, shoulder and inner arm. I have also been having treatments on my face for scarring, hyper-pigmentation and pore reduction. After having 9 treatments for my stretchmarks, I have noticed a significant reduction in their appearance, the stretchmarks on my chest were very vivid prior to treatment and now having completed a course of 12 treatments they are almost completely invisible and I am extremely happy with my results. I am now able to wear strapless and low cut tops with confidence which I was never able to do before. I have completed 6 treatments of microdermabrasion on my face so far and now have a reduced oily appearance throughout the day, my skin is is a lot more smoother and I have a more even complexion. I will continue to have more treatments on my face and will definitely recommend this clinic to anyone wishing to treat scarring and stretchmarks. You can surely expect to see results after time and taking the recommended number of treatments. The staff are also very friendly, they provide you with realistic expectations and advice on how to care for your skin after each treatment.
Friendly, polite and know their stuff. The service I received was excellent and the aftercare I was advised really help speed up my recovery to enable me to continue my sessions quickly and with hardly any discomfort.
I've always had the same lovely consultant who knows my skin which is important to me. She has done a wonderful job removing the pigmented scars on my cheeks.
I suffered from a burn mark on my arm which left a large dark patch. It probably wouldn't bother many people, but it bothered me. I've had 7 medical diamond microdermabrasion treatments and use the ultra light derma white lightening cream and the mark is now gone. I would say I've had a pretty successful experience at the clinic.
I came to the clinic to remove scars and marks on my knees and arms from falling off my bike. I waited before having them treated but they didn't seem to improve very much. So now post treatment, the arms and knees are much lighter and blend in with the rest of my skin tone.
I have a few keloid scars due to the way my skin healed after an operation. I didn’t heal very well. My main concern was reducing the depth of the keloids as much as possible. These have now flattened almost to the rest of my skin level. In addition, the red pigment on the area has faded. I will probably continue to have a few more sessions and continue using the marine boost super serum. I'm very happy with the services and my results.
