Scar Remodelling Singapore
A scar is a visible mark on the skin that remains after a wound or injury has healed. The healing process of a wound involves three main phases: the inflammatory phase, proliferative phase, and remodeling phase. In the inflammatory phase, the body responds to the injury to minimize its extent.
During the proliferative phase, new tissue called “granulation” tissue is formed to replace the lost tissue.
Finally, in the remodeling phase, the granulation tissue is transformed into a scar.
The remodeling phase is a gradual process that can take up to a year to complete. Over time, the scar may become smaller and paler in color. To improve the appearance of scars, we can stimulate the remodeling phase of scar healing.
Treatments like MicroNeedling and Laser Resurfacing can help promote further remodeling of the scar tissue, encouraging it to transform into healthier-looking skin. These treatments can be effective in reducing the visibility of scars and improving overall skin texture.
