Injuries, burns, operations, stretch marks (striae) or diseases such as acne can leave unattractive scars behind. Any of these wounds can become a distressing scar. The reason is obvious: In the event of an injury, the body immediately activates a self-healing mechanism with the aim of closing the wound. In most cases, scars remain as visible signs, but they are usually easy to correct.
Laser treatments are among the best known methods for minimising scars of all kinds.
