Scars are visible marks that form on the skin as a result of the body’s natural healing process following an injury, wound, surgery, or skin condition. When the skin is damaged, the body works to repair and replace the damaged tissue with new tissue. Scarring is a normal part of this healing process, and scars can vary in appearance, texture, color, and size depending on the nature of the injury or condition that caused them.


There are different types of scars, each with its own characteristics

Normal Scars

These scars form as part of the natural healing process and typically fade over time. They may appear slightly raised, reddish, or pink during the initial healing phase and gradually become flatter and less noticeable as they mature.

Keloid Scars

Keloid scars occur when the body produces excess collagen during the healing process, resulting in raised, thickened, and often larger-than-normal scars. Keloids can be itchy, uncomfortable, and may extend beyond the boundaries of the original wound.

Hypertrophic Scars

Similar to keloids, hypertrophic scars are raised and thicker than normal scars. However, they remain within the boundaries of the original wound and tend to improve over time.

Atrophic Scars

Atrophic scars are characterized by a sunken appearance. They can result from conditions like acne or injuries that cause the loss of underlying tissue.

Contracture Scars

These scars form when the skin tightens and contracts during the healing process, often resulting from burns. Contracture scars can limit mobility and may affect underlying tissues and muscles

The best treatment options

Laser Treatments

Various laser therapies, such as fractional laser resurfacing and intense pulsed light, can help improve skin texture, reduce redness, and promote collagen production.

Dermal Fillers/ skin booster injection

Injecting dermal fillers can help raise depressed scars to the level of surrounding skin, creating a smoother appearance.

Morpheus 8

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. It is designed to improve the appearance of various skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, uneven skin texture, and sagging skin. Morpheus8 is known for its ability to target deeper layers of the skin, providing more significant results compared to traditional microneedling or RF treatments alone.
