Scar Revision BRISBANE

Our scar revision protocols involve adopting a multi-modality, multi-treatment approach to address each layer and the various aspects of a mature scar.  Devices and treatments may include Healite LED Light Therapy, Steroid Injection, Exosomes, Dermapen, RF microneedling and/or Lumecca IPL. Our comprehensive approach aims to minimise the appearance, reduce redness and breaking up scar tissue.

The Inigo Approach To Scar Revision

It’s important to address each layer and the various aspects of a mature scar.  This may involve using multiple-modalities, as a plan involving complementary treatments results in greater efficacy than individual treatments alone. A treatment plan may involve Healite, Steroid Injections, Exosomes, RF microneedling, Lumecca IPL and/or home care to treat acne scarring, surgical scarring, stretch marks and all other types of scars.

Inigo Cosmetic is a multi-award winning clinic, including winning scar revision clinic of the year for Inmode Australia. Having performed thousands of scar revision treatments, our team of doctors, nurses, and therapists have tried & tested, developing our own scar revision protocols to achieve optimal results for our patients.

Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency and microneedling technologies to treat the deep layers of the scar, stimulating collagen production and remodeling scar tissue. This dual-action approach helps to improve the appearance of scars by reducing their size, depth, and discoloration. The microneedles create micro-injuries, prompting the skin’s natural healing response, while the radiofrequency energy tightens the skin and encourages new collagen formation, resulting in smoother, more even skin texture over time.

SCAR REVISION INFORMATION

 

Scarring after surgery or due to an injury is often inevitable. Any surgical procedure or injury involving incisions through multiple layers of skin, fat, muscle, and possibly glandular tissue will inevitably leave some form of scar. The degree of scarring is frequently influenced by external factors beyond both your and your surgeon’s control, such as age, complexion, genetics, and lifestyle.

For more detailed information, you can explore our comprehensive surgical scarring guide.

Over time and with proper care, wounds generally heal. Following surgery, scars may initially appear worse within two to three months, but typically take around 12 to 24 months to fully heal or diminish in cosmetic surgery cases.

The healing process can be broken down into three phases:

  • Inflammatory Phase (12 hours to seven days): Beginning around 12 hours post-surgery and continuing for approximately seven days, this phase involves the release of growth factors and white blood cells to aid in wound closure and set the groundwork for subsequent phases.
  • Proliferation Phase (Day seven to 21 days): During this period, the skin prepares to develop a scaffold for the formation of lasting scar tissue, involving the activation of fibroblasts and the initiation of angiogenesis.
  • Maturation & Remodeling Phase (Three weeks to one year): Starting from around week three, the body enters the remodeling phase, rebuilding collagen and reshaping scar tissue. While scars may initially appear reddish and raised within the first three months, they gradually fade and become flatter over time.

This phase presents an optimal opportunity to begin scar therapy treatments, which can accelerate healing and further minimise scar visibility.

To optimise the healing process of your scars, there are various steps you can take before and after surgery to speed up recovery, reduce the risk of wound complications, and improve the appearance of surgical scars. Some of these include:

  • Stop smoking
  • Reduce alcohol intake
  • Eat a balanced and healthy diet
  • Stay well hydrated
  • Prioritise rest and recovery
  • Avoid sun exposure directly over incisions
  • Use products like iS Clinical Sheald Recovery, iS Clinical Super Serum, Silicone gel and Silicone tape
  • Begin LED Light therapy within 7 days following your injury or surgery
  • Begin scar therapy treatments like Lumecca IPL, Morpheus8 RF Microneedling, Dermapen, Exosomes, and steroid injections.

Results will vary from patient to patient and the type of treatment you have done. Our scar revisions treatments are designed to stimulate collagen & elastin production, reduce inflammation, promote wound healing to improve the appearance of scars.

The amount of treatments you will will vary depending on the treatment you have

  • Healite: 4-8 treatments, one to two per week, for four weeks
  • Lumecca IPL: 3-6 treatments, spaced every 4-6 weeks apart
  • RF Microneedling (Morpheus8 or Exion): 3-6 treatments, one treatment every four weeks.
  • Dermapen: 3-6 treatments, one treatment every four weeks.
  • Steroid Injections: 1-3 treatments, one treatment every four weeks.
  • Surgical scar revision: One treatment

We may recommend combining multiple modalities or treatments depending on the type of scar

Here at Inigo Cosmetic there are several products that we recommend following surgery or an injury to help improve the appearance of scarring.

  • iS Clinical Sheald Recovery: We recommend using sheald recovery balm from week 3 to help alleviate dryness, irritation and redness, which can be associated with incisions after surgery.
  • iS Clinical Super Serum Advance+: We recommend using iS Clinical Super Serum Advance+ from week 6 (with clearance from your doctor or surgeon). Super Serum combines 15% L-Ascorbic Acid with a bioidentical copper tripeptide growth factors to help improve the look of hypertrophic scars and hyperpigmentation.
  • Silicone gel: We recommend using Silicone gel from week 6 (with clearance from your doctor or surgeon). Silicone gel can be used to help soften your scars.
  • Silicone Tape: Silicone tape is used from week 6 (with clearance from your doctor or surgeon). Silicone tape can help to support the scar to minimise the chances of the scar stretching, it can also help soften the scar.

We recommend a consultation with one of our experienced staff members to see which products and treatments best work for you and the type of scar you have.
