Scarring and its treatments

Moles are a common type of skin lesion and What is scarring?

Scarring is the inane result of the healing process our skin goes through after any type of injury. There are several reasons that can cause scarring on our skin like acne, physical trauma/injury, stretch marks, etc. Our body heals the damaged skin by repairing the tissue while closing open wounds. Scars come in a multitude of shapes and sizes. Most people wait for their scars to fade away with time, however, the placement and the intensity of a scar may nudge people into opting for treatments that can make their scars less noticeable. For example, one of the most sought-after treatments in Melbourne is laser treatment for surgical scars.


Laser treatment for scarring is one of the most successful ways to reduce it. Just like any laser therapy, for scarring a focused beam of light is exposed on the affected area which helps diminish the appearance of scarring by smoothing over the skin darkened surface.

There are many types of laser treatments that help with scar removal in Melbourne.

  • Laser/Ablative resurfacing: Texture damage like scars, wrinkles and warts can be fixed by this therapy. This method burns off the outer damaged layer of the skin from the surface.
  • Fractionated Laser resurfacing: Pigmentation due to scarring can be helped with this method. The laser penetrates deeper into the skin to remove the cells that are causing pigmentation. Skin renewal and collagen production is also stimulated via this procedure.
  • Non-ablative laser resurfacing: In this procedure infrared heat lasers penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production and skin renewal to help new skin cells grow in place of the old, damaged skin cells.

Treatments like these are all outpatient treatments and require a dermatologically approved statement and guidance. Dr. Saber can provide you with all the support you need through this journey.
