Many of my patients come to my clinic seeking scar removal treatment, so I decided to put together this guide to address some of the most common queries I encounter. It covers frequent types of scars such as keloid scars, acne scars and surgical scars.
With regards to your problem of depressed scars, depressed scars are formed when there is a lack of collagen production while the scar is healing. Thus, it is seen as a sunken skin, whereby it sits below the surrounding skin.
These are the treatments that I would recommend for depressed scars:
1. Smartxide Touch C60 fractional CO2 Laser — It is an ablative laser, which remodels the tissue-in-depth. Therefore, the recovery stage or downtime of redness is about 5 days. At least 3 treatments are needed to see results.
2. Enlighten Pico Genesis Flex — This treatment is a non-ablative but it probably needs at least 4-5 sessions.
