mySkin Mallorca: The Optimal Scar Care and Treatment for Radiant Skin

At mySkin Mallorca, we understand that scars not only leave physical traces but can also have an emotional impact. That’s why we prioritize innovative laser therapies along with comprehensive care and early intervention to achieve the best possible results.

What are scars, and what types exist?

Scars are almost always a result of a traumatic experience, whether it’s an injury, accident, or surgery. Scars can come in various types, including sunken scars (hypotrophic), burn scars, raised scars (hypertrophic), keloid scars, scars from chickenpox, acne scars (ice pick scars), and those from aesthetic surgeries like breast operations or facelifts. The type of scar significantly influences the aesthetic outcome.

Scar Care from the Beginning:

1. Avoidance of Tension:

A crucial measure is to avoid subjecting scars to unnecessary tension. This involves being mindful of movements or stresses that could impact the scar.

2. UV Protection:

Protection from UV radiation is essential to prevent hyperpigmentation of the scar. The application of sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF) is crucial.

3. Silicone Gel after Stitch Removal:

Using silicone gel immediately after stitch removal promotes optimal healing and helps the scar stay flat and inconspicuous.

Early Laser Treatment:

1. Swift Therapy Initiation:

We initiate laser treatment as early as possible after wound healing. Early treatment promotes collagen remodeling in the scar area, improving redness, vascular structures, and pigmentation.

2. Collagen Remodeling:

Our focus is on promoting collagen remodeling in the scar. This process helps optimize the scar structure and achieve a smoother skin surface.

3. Improvement of Redness and Vessels:

Laser therapies aim not only to influence scar structure but also to reduce redness and enhance vascular structures.

4. Controlling Pigmentation:

Laser treatments also play a crucial role in controlling pigmentation to promote an even skin tone.

Our approach combines advanced laser therapies with careful care to holistically address scars. We aim not only to minimize external scar traces but also to strengthen the confidence of our patients.
