Scar correction

Quick overview

Time of treatment
30-90 minutes, depending on the expansion

Anesthesia
Local anesthesia, possibly combined with sedation or general anesthesia

Follow-up treatment
Depending on the findings: special wound dressing and scar therapeutics; compression treatment

Restrictions
Depending on the area

Scars can occur as a result of a surgery or an injury. Although they cannot be “spirited away” they are sometimes significantly improved by correcting operational measures (change of course in a less conspicuous scar direction using the finest suture techniques).

Special scar dressings and scar therapeutic can help the treatment.

You should strictly avoid sunlight on your scars for six month as this may result in pigmentation of the skin around the scar area. If sun exposure is unavoidable you should cover the scars or use creams with SPF 50+.
