You’ve tried every remedy to make your scar go away but it just won’t? Scars are the result of trauma to the skin and once they have settled, it is hard to make them go away.

Why is my scar not fading?

The healing process is already very long in itself (6 months to a year, sometimes 2 years). After being red and swollen, the scar becomes white and flattens. Another problem worth reminding is that each person heals differently, which is why certain scar can fade quickly whereas others never seem to disappear. Several factors are crucial in wound healing. For instance, smoking can lead to complications whereas certain products such as Aloe Vera can speed up the healing process if applied quickly after an injury. For scars that do not completely disappear, there are multiple options to alleviate them.

PRP injections

PRP injections promote cellular restructuration to produce a new revitalized tissue. Here is how PRP works: platelets in the blood are reinjected concentratedly in the treatment area. Platelets work at promoting collagen production by fibroblasts, which gives skin elasticity and resistance. A blood sample is taken from the patient and centrifuged in order to keep a fluid with a high platelet concentration for the injections.


LED is recommended to treat recent scars or to complement PRP injections. LED technology supports the healing process with blue and red light. These lights facilitate collagen production by fibroblasts, which allows skin to heal faster and return to normal. Several LED sessions are usually necessary to achieve visible results, but this soft and non-invasive treatment can, for instance, alleviate a scar before summer, which would be more visible on a tanned skin. These treatments can significantly alleviate scars. A qualified cosmetic surgeon can help you determine the best course of action to make your scar go away.
