What Is Scarring?
Scarring occurs after trauma or inflammation in the skin. This may be due to acne/breakouts, traumatic injuries or skin picking. Different skin types tend to develop different types of scarring, for example skin of colour is more prone to brown marks known as PIH (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation). Fairer skin may suffer with red marks known as PIE (post inflammatory erythema).
The media and celeb endorsements can make it very confusing to know which scarring treatments are safe to use and we can help guide you through the minefield! At Cosmetics Doctor Norwich we are experienced in treating all skin types and colours.
Common scarring concerns are:
Uneven skin eg ice pick, boxscars
Hyperpigmentation/PIH Or Red marks (PIE)
Surgical scars, eg c-section/breast surgery
What Treatments Are Available?
After a consultation with Dr Woodcock, a detailed treatment plan will be made for you. Skincare ingredients can be very confusing and many patients are using the wrong ingredients which can worsen the skins condition! We can recommend a skincare routine to help with your scarring concerns.
Once you have started your new skincare regime, we can advise you on the best treatments to help your scarring. These are best done during autumn/winter out of the highest UV exposure period.
Our skin resurfacing treatments contain ingredients such as acids and retinol to reduce uneven skin tone and help boost collagen levels. They also contain anti-inflammatory ingredients and are safe in all skin types and colours. All ingredients are fully researched by pHformula.
