Out damned Scars
By Vandana Rana
Go scar free with the latest technologies and treatments in cosmetology and dermatology. Here is a quick review of latest scar removal therapies, their effectiveness and precautions.
The scars on your face may not go away completely but new technologies in the fields of dermatology and plastic surgery have made it possible to reduce the severity of these scars.

Scars can be categorised as acne, burn, injury and traumatic scars. Acne scars can be healed by micro-dermabrasion, microneedling, chemical peels and fillers. Microdermabrasion is a painless treatment that exfoliates dead cells from the epidermis, first layer of the skin. Microneedling, on the other hand, is a therapeutic
treatment for acne scars. "You can see about 50 to 60 per cent improvement in the scars after six to eight sittings. Prices for these treatments start from Rs 3,500 per sitting," explains renowned plastic surgeon and head of Enhance Aesthetic and Cosmetic Studio, Dr Manoj Khanna.

"The treatment and price depends on the type and size of the scar," says Dr Kiran Lohia, dermatologist and founder of Cosmedic. Traumatic scars (burns, injuries and accidents) can be treated with silicon gel bandage, which binds the wound. However, surgical scar revision is the most effective treatment option as it can decrease the size of the scar substantially.

"All treatments can be safely performed for the clients above the age of 12," says Dr Khanna. However, he cautions that these treatments should not be performed on active injuries and you should wait for at least four to six weeks. Also, you need to take some precautions post treatment and the most important is defending your skin from UV rays. Apply a layer of sunscreen as a shield against harsh rays. Feeding your skin with ample amount of moisturiser is also important. Also, use shower gel for bathing instead of soap as it has seven to 11 PH level whereas our skin has between four and five.

The treatments need to be taken only under the supervision and prescription of certified dermatologists.
