Scars are formed by fibrous tissues that replace normal skin after an injury. Unfortunately, they are a natural part of the body’s healing process for almost every type of injury to the skin. The degree of scarring depends upon the degree of the wound: deeper wounds result in more significant scarring. Behavioral and environmental factors such as smoking, drinking and sun exposure can increase the severity of scarring. In addition, natural aging can contribute to scarring. As we age our skin loses the ability to repair damaged skin because it produces less collagen and elastin, resulting in greater scarring.
At Belcara Health, we have a variety of skincare treatments available to help reduce the appearance of many types of scars, including those caused by acne, trauma, keloid or hypertrophic scars, and atrophic scars.

During your consultation, we will determine which treatment or combination of treatments will be most effective in in reducing the appearance of your scar.
