Scar Revision in Ultimo

Revise Your Scars & Recover Your Confidence

Raised and unsightly scars may seem like purely cosmetic concerns, but they can interfere with your self-esteem or mental health. You may have heard that your scars are “permanent,” but that’s not the case at Dr Refresh. We understand how debilitating scars can be, and that’s why we offer comprehensive and individualised treatment methods for them.

Our specialist dermatologists not only have the experience and qualifications for nonsurgical scar revision, but they are also skilled in surgical methods for more severe scarring. No scar is too much trouble for the specialists at Dr Refresh. You’ll find your truly permanent solution to your “permanent” scars with our scar revision in Ultimo.

What to Expect

Step 1: Consultation

Before receiving treatment at Dr Refresh, we ask that our patients come in for a consultation to meet with Dr Ritu Gupta or her associate dermatologists, who are specialist medical and cosmetic dermatologists, or one of her nurses and therapists. At this consultation, we want to hear from you and learn more about your concerns. We take this time to evaluate your scars and determine which of our options for scar revision will be best for you.


The Scar Revision Process

Step 2: Scar-Revision

We may utilise several treatments to yield the best results for scar revision in Ultimo. If your scars are more superficial, they may only need laser procedures or RF microneedling. But for deeper, intense scars, we may utilise subcision or punch excision methods, or surgical scar removal. You can rest assured that we will provide the best treatment for you with the maximum comfort possible.


How It Works

Step 3: Follow-Up

Since our treatments for scar revision vary in intensity, your recovery period may be shorter or longer. Laser methods typically require several days of downtime, whereas surgical scar removal may need longer recovery. We will instruct you on exact aftercare at your appointment with Dr Refresh.

Methods for Scar Revision

Laser Resurfacing

We integrate a combination of CO2, Erbium, or Picosecond laser devices to carefully eliminate layers of the scarred skin and encourage growth of new, scar-free skin.

RF Microneedling

RF microneedling punctures the skin with tiny needles while emitting radiofrequency to induce collagen production for healthier, brighter, and smoother skin.

TCA Cross

Our specialist applies trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to each individual scar to chemically stimulate collagen remodelling and reduce scar depth and width

Volume Loss Treatment

We can “fill in” depressions made by scars with volume loss treatments.

Punch Excision

Punch excision involves removing the scarred area and closing it up with sutures to make the skin smooth again.


Through a technique known as subcision, we free the skin from the underlying scar tissue to reduce any indentations from scars.

Surgical Scar Removal

For deeper scars, we perform surgery using local anesthetic to re-make and reposition the scar, so that it can heal as smoothly as possible. No hospital admission is required.
