Stretch Marks & Scars
Talk to us about your scars & stretch marks
Whilst stretch marks aren’t a health issue, some can be particularly severe in appearance, leading to lower self-confidence and battles with body image. They can’t necessarily be ‘cured’, but their visibility can be diminished with an effective, non-surgical treatments such as PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Therapy.
Stretch marks typically take on the appearance of silver or purple slivers that run in lines or bands in areas where the surface of the skin has been compromised. Scarring can take on many forms, from discolouration, pock marks from acne or more severe types of scarring like burns, keloid scars and hypertrophic scarring. Both your scarring and the cause would need to be assessed by one of our Doctors to recommend the appropriate treatment for you.
