Scar Therapy

Offering the Restore scar therapy method for all scars new and old.

Examples of scar tissue that we treat include facial scars, oral scars, surgical scars, caesarean and episiotomy scars, as well as post breast reconstruction and mastectomy scars. These scars can lead to various symptoms due to the formation of adhesions and changes in the surrounding tissue.

  • Pain and Discomfort: Persistent or intermittent pain in the scar area.
  • Sensitivity: Increased sensitivity or numbness around the scar.
  • Restricted Movement: Feeling of tightness, limiting movement or stretching.
  • Adhesions: Bands of scar tissue that can cause pulling or tugging sensations.
  • Aesthetic Concerns: Changes in appearance or texture of the scar.
