What Is A Scar Reduction Treatment?

A scar reduction treatment is a medical or cosmetic procedure aimed at minimising the appearance of scars. These corrective skin treatments can be used to make scars less noticeable, improve their texture, colour, or overall appearance.

Our Scar Reduction Treatments

The appropriate method of scar reduction treatment depends upon how it was caused in the first instance. For example, our acne scar reduction treatment is different from our injury scar treatment.

Once a member of our team assesses your particular scar and circumstances, we will be able to help treat you accordingly with view to achieving the best possible results.

It is usually not possible to completely remove a surgical, traumatic or post-inflammatory scar. However, it may be possible to considerably reduce the appearance of the scar and the surrounding area. This may be a complex process or may be very simple depending upon the age of the scar, its position, shape and size, as well as the cause of the scar.

The Procedure

At the first consultation you will be advised as to the recommended method of scar reduction treatment and the chances of getting a good result. We may advise you not to undergo scar reduction treatment, as we cannot reduce and improve all scars.

We can use a number of different approaches to reduce or correct a scar and the appropriate method depends on the nature of the scar, the amount of scar tissue in the surrounding skin, and where it is positioned. We must also take into account the patient’s expectations in terms of the end result.

Scar reduction treatment could include the use of a fractional laser to remove the top layer of skin & resurface the overlying skin. Steroid injections can be used to treat keloid scarring. Sometimes, complete excision of the initial scar to produce a more aesthetic and less noticeable scar is the best option.

Patients should understand that usually they cannot completely remove scars, but they can significantly enhance their appearance.

How Long Do The Results Of The Treatment Last?

Scar removal or reduction is permanent. However, certain scar treatments have limitations in terms of how much they can enhance the scar’s appearance. Some people want it to be almost perfect, while others are happy with a good improvement. How long the improvement lasts can also differ from person to person.

What Happens After The Treatment?

After the scar reduction treatment, you will need to follow post-care instructions provided by your healthcare provider. This may involve keeping the area clean, applying ointments or creams, and avoiding excessive sun exposure.

There are very little side effects but it is common to experience some degree of swelling, redness, or bruising in the treated area. These effects are usually temporary and should subside within a few days to a few weeks, depending on the treatment.

What’s The Price Of Scar Reduction Treatments?

Prices start from £200. 

All patients have a medical consultation where the doctor will examine the scar and give a quote. The price depends on the complexity and number of sessions it will take to treat the scar.

What Does Getting Started With Us Look Like?

If you’ve been considering an aesthetic treatment to rejuvenate your skin or reshape your body, then the first step is to get in touch with the clinic to arrange a consultation with our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz or one of his team, depending on your requirements.

Call us on 0207 224 2247 or email us on info@wimpoleaesthetics.co.uk to arrange your consultation.

The consultation is an essential part of the patient journey as it gives us the opportunity to discuss your objectives and the outcome you’re hoping to achieve. We will talk you through the procedure or treatment plan, clearly explain any possible risks and the results you can expect, as well as answer all of your questions.

Procedures at Wimpole Aesthetics are carried out under the direction of our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz and his team. We aim to deliver practical, safe and effective medical aesthetic alternatives to cosmetic surgery whilst always respecting a patient’s privacy, dignity and confidentiality.

Our care and support continues after you leave the clinic. You are provided with comprehensive aftercare advice appropriate to the treatment you have received and we welcome patients getting in touch if they have any questions regarding their experience and results.

At Wimpole Aesthetics, we provide a wide variety of medical treatments and non-surgical rejuvenating procedures in the field of anti-ageing and aesthetic medicine.

Our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz stays abreast of the latest developments in this field, but always ensures that any treatment we offer can deliver safe and effective results.

We love to hear our patients tell us that we have the feel of a local clinic right in the heart of London’s medical district.

Our Doctors

Dr Josh Berkowitz - Medical Doctor

Dr. Joshua Berkowitz, who started and leads our clinic, personally trains and supervises our nursing support team and skin care experts.

Dr Natalie Hammer

Dr. Natalie Hammer, a specialist in Aesthetic Medicine from the United States, has 14 years of medical experience, with 8 of those years dedicated to aesthetics. She’s also registered as a doctor in the UK.

The method of scar reduction treatment will depend upon the scar and how it was caused in the first instance such as surgical scars or cut, burns from hot water or acne of chicken pox scars. This may involve the use of an ablative fractional carbon dioxide laser to achieve some resurfacing or may require some steroid injections to reduce keloid scarring or may even include complete excision and revision of the scar.
The time of scar treatment, and the number of scar treatment sessions required, will depend upon the scar and upon the needs of the patient as well as the outcome they are looking to achieve.
This is completely dependent on the scar and the result the patient is hoping for. Some scar treatments are limited to how much better you can make the scar; some patients will want to be as near perfect as possible and others will be happy with a good improvement.
Scar reduction treatment usually does not hurt unless the scar is very complex to treat.
This depends on the nature of the scar and the treatment required – you will be advised of cost at your initial consultation.

What our patients say

Natalie and Dr Josh have been incredible in boosting my confidence and my skin! They truly listen and deliver 100% natural results every time. Natalie is completely honest, professional, has integrity and that’s why I trust her fully. Wimpole clinic have a much greater range of cutting edge treatments beyond anti wrinkle treatment that have resulted in my skin improving with age. It’s mad but true. They always assess what is right for my face and my skin on the day and advise according to what my skin needs. I’ve been going to Wimpole Aesthetics for years now, initially drawn to their incredible IV boosts but am now unable to ever turn back. Class, quality and aesthetic results that are truly worth it!!!

Dr Natalie did the filler and skin booster, she takes care of me a lot, even after the treatment she still cares about me, I booked the review after two weeks, highly recommended! Btw, they have a Chinese speaking staff so don’t worry if you are not familiar with medical terminology!

I have been living with scarring above my upper lip, as a result of electrolysis treatment 25 years ago, in the form of a deep vertical line and small indentations in the skin. I sought help from Wimpole Aesthetics, and from the moment that I entered the small, personal clinic I was totally put at ease and welcomed by the extremely professional and friendly team. I received a course of Mesotherapy and Dermapen treatment and am absolutely delighted with the results. I had almost given up on ever having smooth line-free skin above my upper lip again. I highly recommend letting Wimpole Aesthetics take care of you.

Having lived in Australia for over 10 years, my skin had suffered mild sun-damage and had developed a lot of discolouration on my face in particular. Also, as I approached the age of 40, I noticed a lot of wrinkles appearing! I decided to have Microdermabrasion treatment and the improvements after just 3 treatments were extremely encouraging. I have booked a further 2 treatments in coming months and I am so excited about seeing further benefits to the look and texture of my skin.
