Atrophic scars are usually visible superficially in the skin. An atrophic scar occurs when the normal healing process is disturbed. Insufficient new skin material is then produced. These scars therefore have a very thin layer of scar tissue.
Atrophic scars can be properly treated at Huidzorg West. During the initial consultation, we will discuss your symptoms and assess your skin. We will then create a tailor-made treatment plan. Atrophic scars can be treated effectively by:
Huidzorg West effectively treats atrophic scars with a fractional laser. This method is mainly used to reduce the appearance of scars. This can be done for atrophic scars as well as hypertrophic scars. In addition to improving the skin’s structure, it also reduces any red and dark skin discolouration.
For atrophic scars, chemical peels are often used. An example of an effective peel is a TCA peel. This peel improves the superficial skin structures and flattens atrophic scars. This method is often combined in a treatment process with the fractional laser.
This is a treatment method that mechanically removes the upper layers of the skin. Abrasion literally means “grinding off” or “sanding down”. This replaces old skin cells with new ones. The production of new connective tissue cells is also stimulated, so that the skin can look fresher and smoother. A microdermabrasion treatment is often used in combination with a chemical peel or a fractionated laser for the best possible treatment result.
Unfortunately, you can’t do much about atrophic scars yourself. Once the wounds have healed, you can use silicone plasters or silicone cream as a precaution. These products promote the recovery process.
