Different scars can form in many areas of the human body due to various causes. Physical injuries that a person faces throughout their life, various accidents, surgeries, various diseases, burns, some dermal infections are among the main causes of scarring in the body. The cause of these wounds, which occur in the upper layer of the skin, occurs as a result of damage and injuries affecting the lower layers of the skin.

These scars are never repaired in the form of normal body tissue. Wounds on the skin, a special repair tissue formed by the body and different from the actual tissue, called fibrous tissue, also called “scar it heals with its” texture”.

These bad and negative scar tissues, which are found in the upper layer of the skin and appear as scars, are not normal skin tissues, they are tissues called fibrous scar tissue. Scars on the skin on the body are different than on the Skin the reason it carries a view is also related to this situation. Every wound that contains all the layers of the skin heals, leaving a mark where it is located, and scars cannot be completely eliminated under normal circumstances.

Even if it is not possible to completely eliminate the scars on the skin with the modern and technological capabilities provided by current medical science in Turkey, both surgical scar treatment methods and laser scar corrections are mentioned these traces can be brought to a more acceptable level. The world’s first face transplant surgery took place in Antalya Akdeniz University, twice with 100% success rate seen first of it’s surgical kind.


Healing rates and duration of wounds are extremely different from person to person, skin to skin. The healing process of wounds on the skin, the person’s age, race, genetic elements, the person’s dark or white skin, the wound it differs depending on the area on the body. As an example, facial scars heal better compared to other scars on other parts of the body. Again, the eyelid and lip located in the face area such areas are areas where scars improve and heal better than other parts of the face. As another example, the neck area in the body is much better quality and faster healing than the area in the back can be given.

In cases where scars occur in a way that negatively affects the aesthetic appearance of the body, with some attempts that can be made, the prominence of these scars on the skin can be reduced, the depth of the scars can be eliminated, swelling caused by the wound can be removed and the direction of the wound can be changed to make it more compatible with the body and the wound can be camouflaged. But with all this, the scars that occur on the body are completely absent it cannot be and cannot be eliminated.


The surgical method that will be applied to the patient in the treatment of surgical scars varies depending on the characteristics, structure and area in which it is allowed. Especially wide, decadent, unpleasant-looking tracks with various corrections to be made it can be made thin, more uniform and elegant. The tissue containing scars in the form of a thick line, which are not spread on a wide surface of the skin, is removed by surgical methods, aesthetically better, thinner and more it can be repaired and reattached in layers, without allowing any tension state on the incision line, leaving a little obvious scar. This procedure is called surgical scar treatment. This application is generally local it is performed using anesthesia (regional numbing).

After surgical scar correction, it is normal for the patient to have a pronounced rash on his skin. After a while, the scars begin to fade spontaneously and become the best 12 to 24 months after application, the scars get the same color as the skin.

If there is also a slight roughness on larger scars that cover a large area on the skin, it is possible to make the surface smoother by applying dermabrasion to scars of this shape.


In some people, wounds can heal by growing uncontrollably to overflow from the surface of the skin, leaving a painful, fluffy, hard, itchy, red-colored, bad scar. Scar formations that develop in this way it is called keloid. Keloid develops depending on factors such as the person’s age, race, genetic structure, the area where the wound is located on the body. Keloid usually occurs in people with a predisposition to this healing state.

Especially the anterior wall of the chest, shoulder, back, earlobes are areas of the body that are prone to keloide. If the patient has keloid, there is a chance that he will become keloid again. When it is felt that keloids will develop while a wound heals, steroid pomates keloid development can be stopped with the use of silicone cream or silicone bandage applications.

If the keloid is too large, it should be surgically removed and then massaged with creams, and if there is a tendency to form keloids, intra-lesion steroids should be made without growing stiffness. Again, after fractional laser treatments are performed intended to correct keloid Keloid treatment is a condition that requires time and patience.

Each wound heals, leaving a small scar in place for reasons caused by the biological structure of the person. Even if the scars are not possible to be eliminated, the techniques we apply make the scars less obvious and less it is possible to make it remarkable.


If the scars are not suitable for surgery and the surgery to be performed will not have any benefit for the scar revision treatment in Antalya or Istanbul laser scar treatment can not be applied. Fractional carbon dioxide laser treatment can be done with at least 3 sessions 1 month apart. After this treatment, the scars become smoother, the scar tissue becomes similar to the skin, the depth and pits become camouflaged, and the irregularities improve. Laser trace treatment after 3-5 days in the face area and 10-15 days in the body area, it is normal to have a slight redness and crusting period. After each application, the tracks become better.


Both trail correction operations 2021 prices, and laser trail removal fees, are determined according to the permit structure. You need to be examined for Scar Treatment, for prices that need to be applied to you. . .
