How does scar therapy help?

RESTORE scar therapy can help stimulate your scar and the underlying tissue. Treatment can help reduce symptoms related to your surgery or injury, for example:

  • pain, sensitivity or numbness
  • limited movement or tightness
  • pulling or puckering
  • fibrous scar tissue or scar adhesions

Treatment is effective in older scars too, it’s never too late to benefit from scar treatment.

What is scar therapy?

Scar tissue is less functional

As your body heals after an injury, scar tissue forms. Scar tissue is fibrotic and less mobile then pre-injury. Adhesions may form, sticking together layers under the skin.

How can scar therapy help?

  • Stimulate change to scar tissue on the skin surface, and to adhesions or fibrosis in the underlying tissue.
  • Reduce common symptoms, such as pain and sensitivity.
  • Promote functional and cosmetic improvements after surgery or injury creates scar tissue.

Will my scar vanish?

No, we can’t make your scar tissue disappear. Results vary, and early treatment is recommended for best cosmetic improvements. It’s never too late and old scars can benefit as well.
