Scar Treatments | Vancouver & Surrey BC

Scar Treatments

Scarring is part of the body’s natural healing process, and while we may appreciate our body’s ability to recover from trauma, the appearance of scars can be bothersome, especially if they are in an easily visible location.

There are many different types of scars, and different treatment options are better suited to certain types of scars. Shine MD’s Acne Clinic offers treatments options for Acne Scars, including high-quality skincare, medical-grade facials, microneedling, subcision, and laser skin treatments like Halo™, Moxi®, Profractional™, and Forever Clear BBL®.

We also offer treatment for scars that develop due to trauma or injury. The physicians at Shine MD are General Practitioners with Special Interest in Dermatology, and they can provide medical management for keloids and hypertrophic scars, including the use of liquid nitrogen, steroid injections, and laser treatments. The new Moxi® Laser by Sciton is especially effective at treating pigmented scars related to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which occurs commonly in skin of color.

Acne Scar Treatment at Shine MD

The Acne Clinic at Shine MD has quickly become a leading provider of acne scar treatments in Vancouver. There are many research-proven options available depending on the type of acne scarring, including treatments that are safe for all skin types.

Post Surgical Scarring

Post surgical scarring is most commonly treated using combinations of the Profractional Laser, BroadBand Light Laser, Halo and Moxi. Your provider can perform laser assisted medication delivery in the appropriate setting to reduce hypopigmentation or reduce the thickness of keloid scars. A series of treatments is usually required. Results vary from patient to patient.

Keloid Scars and Hypertrophic Scars

Keloids are treated with injections of intralesional Kenalog (triamcinolone) or 5 -Fluorouracil injections, spaced one month apart. The area can be pretreated with liquid nitrogen to improve the penetration of the medication. Common side effects of steroid injections are thinning of the skin and atrophy at the site of the injection. There is increasing evidence that combination treatments with both medications has a positive effect on improving the appearance and symptoms of keloid scarring.
