Facial Scar Removal 



Facial scar revision is a safe and effective procedure to reduce the appearance of facial scars caused by injury, surgery, or acne. Such treatment can improve the texture, colour, and overall appearance of scars, leading to improved self-confidence and quality of life.

Types of Scars:

Facial scars can vary in appearance and can be classified into several different types, including:

  1. Atrophic Scars: These scars are characterized by a depressed or sunken appearance, and are typically caused by acne or other skin conditions such as chicken pox.
  2. Hypertrophic Scars: These scars are raised and thickened, and are often caused by surgery, burns, or trauma.
  3. Keloid Scars: These scars are similar to hypertrophic scars, but are larger and more raised. They can be itchy or painful and can occur anywhere on the body.



Miss Berridge offers a customised facial scar revision treatment plan that is tailored to the individual needs and goals of each patient. The treatment plan may include a combination of advanced techniques, such as subcision, dermal fillers, botulinum toxin, regenerative medicine, energy based skin treatments, laser resurfacing and/or surgical revision to improve the appearance of scars.

Treatment is performed in-clinic under local anaesthesia, and the length of the procedure depends on the extent and location of the scar. Patients may experience some mild discomfort or swelling after the procedure, but these side effects are generally temporary.


After facial scar revision, patients may experience some slight redness, swelling, or tenderness at the treatment site. However, these side effects are generally mild and subside within a few days to a week. Sutures are removed within 5 to 7 days after surgery. Patients can return to their normal activities within a few days to a week after the treatment, depending on the specific techniques used.

Patients are advised to avoid sun exposure and to apply sunscreen (SPF-50) and silicone gels to the treated area to protect the skin during the healing process and encourage optimal scar aesthetics.

Facial scar revision treatments can produce excellent results, with significant improvement in the appearance of scars.
