It is a type of scar usually resulting from deep wound, surgery, accidental injury, or burns. The scar is raised and red. 

2/ Keloid

A keloid scar is an abnormal scar, which is red and growing out of the wound. It occurs when a wound scar grows excessively after the wound has healed. There is genetic risk of getting a keloid scar. Some parts of the body are prone to keloid, such as ear lobe, chest, and upper arm.

IPL does not directly improve the scar. IPL reduces the scar redness and dark spots, even out skin tone. It effectively improves the appearance of the scar. There is minimal or no downtime.

4/ Micro-Needling

A medical grade micro-needling treatment is ideal for acne scar treatment with less downtime. We uses ultra-fine medical grade micro-needles. The treatment creates micro-puncturing on skin, causes new collagen formation. The downtime is short, suitable for patients who are looking for acne scar treatment with less downtime. It can be combined with PRP treatment.

The platelets in our blood contain numerous growth factors. When platelet is activated, it releases these beneficial substances, helping our skin to generate collagen. The skin begins a natural healing process to get rid of acne scars.
It is high recommended to combine PRP scar reduction to laser scar treatment, to deliver the best results possible.

6/ Scar Injection

Keloid scar is hard to get rid of naturally. Scar injection remains the popular technique to reduce the size of keloid scar. Small amount of corticosteroid is mixed with local anesthesia used, and injected into the scar. It reduces the size of the scar, and flattens it. The treatment is minimal discomfort because of the local anesthesia. It usually requires 3 – 5 sessions to produce a good result.
