The scar team offer a range of treatments for scarring, both physical and psychological. The type of treatment we advise will vary according to the type of scar, how mature it is, prior treatments, your general health and your expectations. Sometimes, the treatment required will vary with time as a scar naturally matures. For inflamed scars such as hypertrophic and keloid scars, it is not uncommon for a course of treatment to be required for at least two years. At the opposite end of the spectrum, a scar that has a poor cosmetic appearance can sometimes be dealt with by a short scar revision operation.
