Scar / Stretch Mark
Scars are left after a wound or after surgery.
These scars are treated by scar removal treatments, but they will never be able to
be erased completely. So, the correct procedural name should be scar improvement
rather than scar removal.
Stretch mark occurs when the epidermal layer becomes thin and the collagen and elastin
gets damaged, which appears like a line on skin surface. As the time goes by, the red stretch
mark turns into white stretch mark. It is very difficult to remove the white stretch mark completely,
so it is very important to get a treatment at the beginning stage.
The skin around the scar had been pulled and the scar becomes wider. It occurs often in growing children or young people.
The skin surface is hard and prominent with redness. At first, the size grows but it does not grow beyond the damaged area. It gets smaller and lighter after 6-18 months. It appears frequently in children and teenagers who have quick collagen production.
Dented scar occurs due to damaged dermis and subcutaneous fat. These scars are occurred as subcutaneous fat under the skin is damaged. In addition, indented scars can also be occurred after surgical sutures.
It looks similar to hypertrophic scars, but does not get smaller even after 6 to 18 months and spreads to normal skin. Keloid scars in many cases are recurrent after resection so it is very important to accurately diagnose the Keloid scars before the treatment.
During the excessive weight gain or adolescent growth, the skin is stretched for a long time which causes a stretch mark. Usually, it occurs on arms, thighs, abdomen, hips, calves, and chest. For women after pregnancy, it occurs on abdomen area or muscle areas after weight training.
There is a relation between stretch mark and adrenocortical hormones. After pregnancy, it may increase the secretion of female hormones and adrenocortical hormones, which can cause excess stretch marks. This symptom can be found highly in patients with Cushing's syndrome.
Since the same stretch marks occur on identical twins, it is also reported that the cause can be also genetic influence.
Types of scars are very diverse and vary depending on the cause and area of the scar and the degree of skin damage
and skin type. Even though the scar does not give any functional problems, it is required to get treatment since scars are highly visible.
The laser helps to regenerate the skin cyto and collagen to relieve the scar, also it helps to remove the scar tissue which is inside of the skin as well.
PRP treatment, also called as blood skin regeneration, regenerate the skin cyto and the collagen with your own blood. The cyto from your blood will be centrifuged then inject on your skin for regeneration and rejuvenation. If this treatment is combined with laser treatment, it will maximize the effectiveness.
A therapy using a MTS for injecting a growth factor to the skin dermis, to nourish the cytos that provides an excellent effect on the creation and maintenance of collagen and elastin cyto function. The advantage is that the size of the particles are very small and it can be injected very well into the skin.
