About scar revision in Victoria.
When trauma to your skin occurs, discolouration, raised tissue and/or depressions can result, leaving behind an undesirable reminder of weight gain, growth spurts, accidents, surgeries or spells of acne. The best time to treat a scar is within the first few months following the injury; however, old scars can also be greatly improved. For Victoria and Vancouver Island residents who are troubled by body scars, facial scars or stretch marks, we offer a range of non-invasive treatment options to fade and smooth these otherwise permanent markings.

How it works:
A scar revision treatment plan will be established based on the type of scars to be addressed. A wide range of lasers, light devices, radiofrequency microneedling and injectable treatments are available to treat a variety of scar types. Cosmedica has had a particular specialized dedication and focus on scar revision for many years ranging from stretch marks and acne scars to traumatic, surgical and keloid scars. The various components of each scar are addressed including irregular red, white and brown colours as well as irregular texture ranging from indented to raised scars. Lasers such as UltraPulse® CO2, Fotona and Sciton Erbium lasers and non-ablative lasers like the ResurFX™ are commonly used as well as dermal fillers, neuromodulators and skin-care. Silicon creams/gels such as Strataderm® may be utilized depending on the scar type.

Scar Revision Frequently Asked Questions
Most scar treatments are easily tolerated with the help of topical anesthetics or oral analgesics. We review safety and comfort measures as part of every scar assessment and consultation.
Depending on your type of scarring and the treatment plan designed for you, results may be seen in as little as 1 treatment. Most scars require a series of treatments for best results.
Textural scars can be smoothed and the depth of depressed scars can be reduced. Skin tone and irregularly coloured scarring can also be evened.
Non-ablative laser scar treatments may require 3-5 days of recovery which would include redness and mild swelling, settling into a bronzy glow for another few days. Ablative laser scar treatments may require 7-14 days of recovery, which would include wound healing, redness and flaking. Dermal filler scar treatments may incur mild bruising but, generally, results are instant.
Most scar revision results are long lasting. Minimizing trauma to the skin, good sun protection and a healthy lifestyle are general good principles to maintain results and prevent further dam-age.
