Description of the procedure
Scar and tattoo removal in Polyclinic Lege Artis is performed exclusively surgically, and a number of procedures depend on each individual case. There is a possibility that the scar will not completely disappear, but its prominence, visibility and tension will be reduced. For a result in the removing of the scar, the time of injury is an important factor. Scar correction usually takes place 6 months after the injury. Exceptionally, in some situations, the scar can be corrected earlier.
All common medical therapy can be taken regularly, except for medications that reduce viscosity and blood clotting (antiaggregant and anticoagulation therapy – Andol 100, Aspirin, Marivarin). All necessary information is provided on the first examination.
Course of the procedure
The procedure is done under local anesthesia.
Precautions and limitations
If we are dealing with removal of smaller scars and tattoos, it is important to perform regular hygiene. Stronger effort should be avoided due to faster and more effective healing, especially in areas of intense skin tension.
