how to get rid of scars


As we go about living life, many of us may end up in situations that lead to scarring.

Whatever your issue or concern is, we may be able to help.


As with most things at Skin Essentials, it begins with a consultation of your concerns, including all treatment options tried to date. Depending on the type of concern, and scar, we may be able to help you. If we cannot, or lack the appropriate equipment, Dr Joshi can
refer you to a colleague who may be able to help instead.

Your options if you wished to go ahead vary from steroid injections directly into a hypertrophic or keloid scar to more extended options for acne including surgical subcision, which includes breaking down scars under the surface of the skin, to free it up so it does not look as puckered or tethered
