Scarring is the body’s natural way of healing and providing protection when the skin barrier has been breached. There are many causes of scar formation, including trauma, acne, previous surgery and illnesses, such a chicken pox.
Many scars improve and fade with time. From the time of injury, a scar will take up to 18 months to mature to its final result. Whereas some people are happy to live with these blemishes, many seek out various methods of improving the appearance of their skin and restoring it to its previous state.

What does the procedure consist of?
This is a very brief and relatively painless procedure. The area to be treated is cleaned using an alcohol wipe and numbing cream is applied to the area for a few minutes. The steroid is then injected in to the base of the keloid using a multi-puncture technique.

We advise you to keep the area clean, but other than that there is no specific care.

All my questions were addressed, treatment options, outcomes, potential side effects and after-care instructions were very clear. And the procedure was far less painful than I had imagined!
A gentle hand… you might have very possibly cured my needle-phobia finally! And thank goodness, as everybody thinks I’m looking younger and fresher now!
A clinic that insists on natural results! Fabulous! Now I’m loving the compliments.
Dr Raina has been my doctor for the last 18 months, and she will be for many months longer.
Recently my 20 year old daughter (who has beautiful full lips) told me she wanted to get her lips enlarged and that she had already spoken to another doctor about it, who was willing to do it for her. I took her along with me to discuss it with Dr Raina who explained to her that her natural lips are very nice and in proportion with the rest of her face. She mentioned that more volume will ruin the proportions and she would look ‘done’. We are both very grateful for the honesty there.
A very professional, honest and straightforward doctor with surgical skills to match! My right earlobe split 6 years ago, and I was too anxious to have it repaired.
Now, I have no idea why I didn’t get it done sooner!
After discussing the pros and cons of removing the mole on my face, I finally underwent the procedure. Three months on, I am very pleased with the result. I appreciate the no frills honesty and straightforwardness.
Highly professional… I will certainly be recommending you!
