Common Scar Revision Procedures & Removal Treatment in Malaysia ​

Common Scar Revision Procedures in Malaysia

Subcision

Subcision is a simple and safe scar removal treatment in Malaysia used to treat cutaneous scars on patients who have undergone surgery or burns. It is performed using a special hypodermic needle inserted into the skin surface through a puncture.

The fibres connecting the scar to the underlying tissue will loosen and break in this process. In addition to lifting depressed scars, subcision can trigger collagen release, which aids in diminishing the scar’s overall appearance.

Scar Removal Treatment in Malaysia: Intralesional Steroid Injection ​

Intralesional Steroid Injection

This safe scar removal treatment is considered the gold standard in treating keloid and hypertrophic scars without surgery. Causing only minimal pain, the anti-inflammatory steroid injections can also reduce pain and itchiness associated with keloid scars.

While removing the scars completely is impossible, this treatment method can flatten them and make them less noticeable. Most patients need a few injections every four to five weeks to see a significant difference.

Skin Resurfacing Scar Laser

With Pico and Fotona laser technologies, we can efficiently address a wide range of scar types, such as acne scars, pitted scarring, stretch marks, surgical scars, and traumatic scars.

These advanced scar removal methods direct concentrated light beams through short pulses to the affected area. The fractional laser creates microscopic laser wounds in the treated area, which will heal to form a new layer of smooth, firm skin.

As a result of the collagen remodelling effects induced by the lasers, patients will witness significant improvement in skin texture, tone, and tightened skin.

PLINEST® & NEWEST®

PLINEST® and NEWEST® are skin boosters from Mastelli, Italy, clinically proven to treat acne scars effectively. They both contain a regenerative ingredient known as polynucleotides (PN).

This natural DNA molecule is highly purified and extracted from the reproductive glands of trout fishes using high-temperature sterilisation procedures to obtain a pure ingredient that is free from pharmacologically and allergically active protein contaminants.

Both skin rejuvenators are ideal for individuals with an active lifestyle. They help:

  • Effectively treat dry and wrinkled skin types
  • Reduce skin ageing
  • Repair damaged skin by restoring fibroblast and collagen
  • Improve skin elasticity, hydration, texture, tone and radiance
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Treat acne scars, hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores

What to Expect

Our skin boosters offer visible firming, tightening, and lifting effects after just one session.

By the second session, you can expect to see a noticeably enhanced natural glow and significant improvement in skin smoothness. Scars, fine lines, and wrinkles will appear lightened and flatter, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Lastly, the third session offers a significant boost in skin volume and firmness, fully exuding a youthful and naturally glowing appearance. For optimal results, we recommend undergoing two to three sessions for results that can last up to one year.

Scar Removal Treatment in Malaysia: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment ​

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment

PRP, or Platelet Derived Plasma, contains growth factors that speed up the skin’s recovery process, particularly in scars and wounds. It is usually performed after laser resurfacing, micro-needling or subcision procedures.

The procedure involves drawing a small sample of the patient’s blood and placing it into a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the blood cells. The concentrated platelet serum is then injected under the scar to stimulate collagen and elastin and promote skin cell regeneration.

This results in smoother, softer, and more vibrant skin, which helps reduce the appearance of scarring. PRP is a safe procedure with a high satisfaction rate among patients.

Common Types of Scars

Edit Content

Normal Fine-Line Scars

Fine-line scars are common following a minor wound (e.g. a cut) or after surgery. They are not painful but may be itchy for a few months.

These scars usually heal to leave a raised line, gradually fading and flattening over two years. However, the scar will not completely disappear, leaving you with a visible mark or line.

Edit Content

Keloid Scars

A keloid scar is an overgrowth of tissue that happens when too much collagen is produced at the site of a wound. The scar can keep growing even after the wound has healed.

These scars appear raised above the skin and can be pink and red or look the same colour or darker than the surrounding skin. Keloid scars are often accompanied by itching or pain; if they are tight and located near a joint, they may even limit movement.

Edit Content

Hypertrophic Scars

Like keloid scars, hypertrophic scars result from excess collagen produced at the site of a wound.

However, they do not grow beyond the boundaries of the original wound. These scars may continue to thicken for up to six months before gradually improving over a few years.

Edit Content

Contracture

Contracture scars are a result of burning and loss of skin. As part of the healing process, the scar pulls the edges of the skin and causes it to tighten. Movement impairment is common and may even affect muscles and nerves if the contracture scar is deep.

Edit Content

Pitted or Sunken Scars

Scars caused by skin conditions, like acne or chickenpox, can sometimes have a sunken or pitted appearance. Pitted scars, also known as atrophic or ‘ice-pick’ scars, may form due to an injury that results in a loss of underlying fat.

On the other hand, severe acne can damage the skin and lead to scarring, which can take various forms, such as:

  • Ice Pick Scars
  • Boxcar Scars
  • Rolling Scars

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

A scar removal laser treatment’s effectiveness varies depending on the patient. However, it doesn’t eliminate scars; the treatment simply replaces the original scar with a less noticeable one.

At our clinic, we believe in creating a personalised plan for our patients to achieve optimal results.

We advise our patients to follow post-treatment care instructions closely, be patient, and complete their recommended skincare routine. Our goal is to help our patients achieve beautiful, healthy-looking skin.

When our skin is injured, our body will begin the healing process to repair the wound. However, if the injury is deep enough, a scar may remain after the wound has healed. These scars may fade or become lighter with time.

However, some scars can become permanent. In such cases, laser treatments can effectively remove the top layer of the damaged skin’s surface to improve its appearance and tone.

The treatment also targets the blood vessels in the scar tissue to reduce redness and stimulates the production of new skin cells.

Patients who have undergone a scar removal laser treatment compare the feeling to being shot by a rubber band. Their skin also adapts to the minimal pain quickly, and it is only mildly uncomfortable at most.

It might be comforting for patients to know that doctors do apply topical anaesthetic onto the area so your skin will be numb before the scar removal laser treatment.

Commonly used for skin rejuvenation purposes, laser treatment is a popular remedy for various skin issues such as aged spots, melasma, dermal pigmentation and freckles.

Scar removal treatments in Malaysia usually range from RM300 to about RM1,500, depending on the size of the scar and the type of treatment.

The extent of the treatment also factors into the total cost as some patients would need more sessions to produce the desired result.
