Scar Management

Scar Management includes a range of treatment techniques which reduce the development of unsightly scars from surgery or injury. Attending therapy will provide you with education about scar formation and how to minimise your scar.

The application of treatment techniques and products will assist in the early maturation of the scar. These may include scar massage, taping, pressure garments or silicon products.

The earlier the scar is treated the greater the improvement. Common scars that are treated include:

  • Keloid Scars
  • Hypertrophic Scars
  • Post-trauma Scars
  • Skin Graft Scars – splint skin graft and full thickness skin grafts
  • Mastectomy Scars
  • Caesarean Scars
  • Burns Scars
  • Cardio-thoracic Surgery Scars
  • Breast Reduction or Augmentation Scars
