Are Your Self-Harm Scars Making You Self-Conscious?

Posted on 29 Apr, 2020

If, for whatever reason, you have found yourself dealing with self-harm scars, it can often leave you feeling like they will be with you for the rest of your life. Old or new, understandably, this can make you feel self-conscious about their appearance and how that reflects on you, especially if they are in a visible place. For this very reason, people often feel the need to cover up their scarring, in order to avoid any questions or unwelcome looks from others.

If your self-harm scars have left you feeling self-conscious then now is the time to do something about it, whether these scars are fresh or have already fully healed.

Self-Harm Scar Treatments at The Laser Treatment Clinic

Our philosophy is that to achieve the best results possible, a treatment plan should include several different targeted approaches in order to deliver the best results. By doing so, we can improve the look of both new, and old self-harm scars.

Starting with the upper layers of the skin, we address textural and discolouration issues associated with scarring by using advanced dermabrasion to boost the skin’s natural rejuvenation process. This is achieved by effectively “polishing” the skin’s surface which not only removes dead skin to improve the look of the affected area but also stimulates collagen production to help smooth the appearance of scars.

Complementing advanced dermabrasion is collagen induction therapy (CIT) which is used to improve the look of self-harm scars by targeting the deeper layers of the skin. Ideal for use even on the toughest of scar tissue, also works by stimulating collagen production – through the use of microneedles which create micro injuries in the skin.

After which the Derma White Treatment may also be recommended if deemed necessary.
