How Burn Scars Can Be Treated

Posted on 02 Dec, 2021

Scalding and burning of the skin can cause permanent damage and severe burns, such as second-degree and third-degree burns, will leave permanent scars. When a scar occurs as a result of a burn, many people will seek a treatment in order to minimise the appearance of their scar and to reduce pain or irritation this causes. At The Laser Treatment Clinic, we are well-versed in the treatment of scars, having years of experience in treating the appearance of a variety of scars. We work with our clients to achieve rejuvenated skin and to improve their self-confidence.

Treating a scar with laser therapy

Lasers have seen become a popular treatment method for reducing the appearance of scars. Thanks to the number of advancements in laser technology, at our Harley Street clinic we are able to offer several treatments for scars. These treatments work to achieve a reduction in the visible appearance of a scar, flattening raised scars, reducing any pain or irritation from the scar, and allowing mobility in areas where a scar may have limited movement.

Our treatments include:

Advanced Dermabrasion – Gently exfoliates the upper layers of skin, resurfacing the area of damaged skin and rejuvenating and smoothing the skin’s appearance.

Collagen Induction Therapy – This treatment stimulates the body’s natural collagen producing ability. By inducing the collagen production to this area of the skin, the scar will be treated from below the surface of the skin. This will result in a dramatic improvement to the skin’s appearance. Helping to restore a supple look to the skin.

Intense Pulsed Light Treatment (IPL)  – IPL is great for targeting the redness of scars, minimising their appearance.

Derma White Treatment – This treatment is great for smoothing the skin and targeting the pigmentation of scars minimising their appearance.

Along with our laser treatments, our friendly team of skin experts will also offer a follow up care routine, including a range of products from the Zaheda Skincare range.
