We look at the benefits of choosing SkinPen if you’re considering adding scar revision treatments to your clinic portfolio, and how the SkinPen treatment works.
What are scars?
Scars form on the surface of the skin after an injury or trauma to the skin. They replace normal skin, which is made up of fibrous tissue that’s the result of the skin trying to heal itself. While scarring is part of the natural healing process, it can often leave marks on the skin that stand out, usually as a slightly different colour.
Scars vary in size and severity. While they are not harmful, they are permanent, and many patients choose to invest in scar revision treatment to reduce the visual signs of scarring.
