Scar Treatments

At the Austin Clinic we have multiple options available for scar reduction. We have dermal rollers available for purchase to use at home, several topical treatments, broadband light treatment and our advanced skin needling treatment, Dermapen. The doctor will assess your skin to determine which treatment may be best for you.

Dermapen is used for facial rejuvenation and to treat scarring, stretch marks, pigmentation and large pores. Dermapen uses multiple fine needles to pierce the skin and stimulate natural collagen growth. This process breaks up scar tissue allowing new collagen to help rejuvenate the area. It also increases absorption of topical serums with active ingredients. These are applied during and after each treatment to help increase the skin’s own ability to repair and refresh the area treated.

Anaesthetic cream will be applied to the area 30-45 minutes before your treatment to increase comfort. Some people feel some mild discomfort during the procedure. Disposable needles are used to eliminate the risk of cross-contamination and the adjustable needle depths allow for a personalised treatment. This treatment is suitable for most areas.

Some potential side effects can include temporary redness, slight swelling and grazing of the treated area. In rare cases temporary hyperpigmentation can occur. Most commonly the area that has been treated will appear grazed for a day or two after the treatment while the skin begins to heal.

Multiple treatments may be required to achieve optimal results. You will need a consultation with the doctor to see if this procedure is appropriate for you.
