The famous Caesarean Section so commonly used for the safe delivery of a baby and hysterectomy operations will almost certainly leave a distinctive scar. While surgeons usually make the incision along the bikini line to keep it as discreet as possible, it is often performed under emergency circumstances. It’s the woman’s and baby’s safety that is the priority. What’s more it is a very deep wound affecting the abdominal muscles which take a good many weeks to heal completely.
While many women accept the scarring as part of the childbirth process, or even life saving treatment, there are many who feel some distress about their appearance. Trying oils, abrasive chemicals, and massaging are unlikely to make much of a difference to the scarred tissue. But now there is a highly successful treatment in the form of laser technology. The latest and most powerful lasers are being used to treat even the most stubborn of scars caused from surgical procedures such as the C-Section and hysterectomy.
If you have a C-Section scar that is bothering you, you may wish to consider the laser alternative. The skin and laser experts at Juvea Aesthetics are the best placed team of technicians to get the permanent results you are looking for. Using the powerful ICON laser with its state-of-the-art method of targeting only scarred tissue, we can guarantee an improvement in your scar in a matter of months. These two factors combined means laser scar removal for C-Section has never been so accessible and successful.
Our before and after photos reveal just how successful the laser treatment can be. The original scar is very apparent while the after-treatment image taken just a short time after the last session and shows a great improvement to the surface of the skin. Remember this effect is permanent – unless you go for a further few sessions at another time.
The success of the treatment will depend on several factors such as the severity of the scar, how old the scar is and your skin type. We measure success by levels of improvement. We know that you will see a degree of improvement after the first session, but just how much further you can go is a matter of judging the progress. Some people say their scar disappeared altogether while some report a 70% reduction in the appearance. Some women have multiple caesarean sections which can complicate scarring further. So it is essential that your health history is known before you start any treatment. At Juvea, you will have a thorough skin assessment at the time of your first consultation so that your clinician fully understands why and how your scar has come about. Your treatment plan will be worked through with you and your laser technician at this time. It is likely you will have around 4-6 sessions but a few more may be considered necessary to get that bit closer to the perfect result.
The ICON laser works by encouraging the body’s own immune response which means your skin will heal the scarred tissue in its own way - working gently to rejuvenate the area. The skin won’t be weakened and the laser treatment does not affect the muscle tissue beneath the deeper skin layers. If you have to be operated on that area again the surgeon will be able to cut on or near the site of the original scar.
No, most people get the results they are expecting within a few months. It will depend upon the amount of sessions required to reach that level of success you were looking for but you will have a better idea when you meet with your consultant and have a full assessment of your scarring condition.
If you have seen cheaper prices, be warned. The technician might not be as qualified as they should be or they might be using substandard devices. You may save a few pounds, but the risks range from burning (causing further scarring) to results that show no improvement at all. A false economy and - even worse - medical treatment might be needed.
No, it might not have completely finished its healing process, but it should be possible to start treatment. It is sensible to check with our consultant over the phone in the first instance.
No, but it is advisable to avoid underwear or tight clothing that finish at the point of the C-Section scar. It will be sensitive for a few days and you don’t want to cause irritation and inhibit the natural recovery process.
It is not really painful as such. You can be assured of this because no general or local anaesthetic is required. This is one of the best things about the procedure – the lack of anaesthetic means no drowsy after-effects. Some liken the sensation to an elastic band snapping on the skin at the time of laser activation. For a few days afterwards you may experience some slight redness like mild sunburn which will fade between 24-72 hours. The only recovery needed is to be careful of the affected area over the next few days. And take the aftercare advice from your technician.
The beauty of the ICON laser is its accuracy at targeting just the scar tissue. By having a Juvea technician administer the laser treatment you can be assured that moles in the local area will not be touched by the laser beams. Your technician will examine your surrounding skin as well as the scar itself at the time of your first consultation.
A 8 It is very important to stay out of the sun immediately after sessions and ideally throughout the course of treatment. Your consultant will advise you to wear a high sun protection factor product for when it is considered safe to expose the area to the sunlight. Loose cotton clothing is the best solution until a period of time after your last laser session.
This really depends upon the treatment. Sometimes they are compatible especially if in totally different areas of the body. Talk to your consultant about this.
