Remove Belly Piercing Scar in Dubai

Body piercings can safely be termed as one of the oldest forms of cosmetic expression known to man. Our ancestors from thousands years ago used to practice it for various motives. Today it’s a personal and fashion statement for each individual. However, the piercing can sometimes become infected; can suffer trauma or accident and hence causing a scar to take place as the wound heals. Scars are vivid marks that are colored and felt differently than the surrounding skin, which makes them pretty obvious to the eye and also aesthetically unappealing. Belly piercing scars are quite common after facial piercing scars that people would rather have removed as soon as possible. Other complications that come with body piercing are the formation of abnormal scars that are unique to a person’s immune system, genetic factors and conditions of piercing. In order to remove belly piercing scar in Dubai, patients can undergo a variety of treatments varying in intensity, all with successful results.

Types of Scars

Before getting your scar treated, you should be familiar with the types of scars which is a normal reaction by your body to physical injury and can occur in varying sizes and shapes. People will ignore scars that are small, and not in an area exposed to view. But on a majority, scars resulting from burns, accidents, surgery, piercings and acne always remain and do not go away without proper treatment. It hence becomes important to understand the various types of scarring and hence which treatment can fix them effectively.
  • Keloid scars: These scars are pretty obvious due to their reddish brown coloring, rising on the skin and ridged in texture. They are abnormal in nature since they are formed by excessive production of elastin and collagen fibers in the body.
  • Contracture scars: Such scars are a characteristic of burn scars or areas where tissue has been removed from the body. This causes the scar to be smooth, shiny pink in appearance and cause puckering (stretching) of the skin making the skin contract in that area. Such scars affect muscular and nervous tissue as well.
  • Hypertrophic scars: These scars are also raised and reddish brown in appearance, but unlike keloids they do not exceed the region of the wound but are still unappealing at best.
  • Acne Scars: Acne scars are a result of acne and bacteria and these scars can vary from protruding bumps to depressions in the skin. Much like piercing scars caused from infection these scarring vary in shape and size making their treatment unique and can be determined only by visiting a dermatologist.

Treatment

Non-invasive method of treatment includes the application of a topical scar cream to the scarred area as per directions of the manufacturer’s. It is advised to use silicone-based gel creams especially for individuals who are predisposed to developing heavy scarring (keloids). Silicone cream can reduce size and pain in developing scars. Make sure you clean the wound and wash it accordingly before applying an even layer of cream. Once that is done, dressing can be applied to keep the cream effective. A treatment involving corticosteroid injections requires guidance from an expert/dermatologist. A series of treatments involving corticosteroid injections will make the scar fade steadily, flatten it out and reduce pain. On bi-weekly basis, the patient will visit the clinic to receive an injection onto the site and it will be determined how many visits you need depending on your type of scar. Watch out for allergic reactions, since not everyone is acclimatized to such injections. Such injections are usually used in extensive keloid scarring that extends over a larger surface than the area of the injury. Keloid scarring is predominant in people of darker skin and usually happens over tattoos and piercings. Laser revision treatment involves the use of high-intensity laser pulses to remove the top layer of the skin that usually contains the scar. Laser scar revision ensures that skin can re-grow more evenly as it heals causing the scar to eventually fade out almost completely. Successful results with laser revision are dictated by height/depth of the scar and for sizable scarring, treatment may include various sessions of treatment. A more traditional approach to scar revision is having a surgery that fixes up the unevenly scarred wound. A plastic surgeon can easily perform this on his operating table and would remove the scar then rejoin the leftover skin with dissolvable sutures or surgical glue. Even surgery can leave a scar but with proper surgery, careful administration of creams and medicines, the scarring would be minimal and a lot more even.
