Scar Management & Physiotherapy/Scar Assessment & Advice

Our patients are cared for by a multi-disciplinary team, who work together to achieve the best possible treatment outcomes

There are a wide variety of different types of scars with each holding different characteristics. As a result of this, when it comes to scar assessments, it is important that each scar is examined individually in order to understand the most effective treatment to best improve the look and feel of the scar whilst improving the well-being of patients.

Therefore, at 152 Harley Street, we believe it is important for each patient to receive a team approach when approaching their scar treatment. We have a specialist team focusing on scars and the best ways in which they can be treated. We specialise in treating all types of scars, including keloid scars and hypertrophic scars.

During your scar assessment, our experts will aim to understand the impact of the scar on you and your well-being. Your scar will be examined and information on the history of the scar and your medical background will be collected. Following this, our scar experts will be able to develop a plan for treatment and advise you on the best possible treatment to improve the look and feel of the scar as well as reducing the impact on your function and well-being.

We understand that scars can have a significant impact on your self-esteem and quality of life, and we are committed to providing you with the best possible care. Whether you have a recent scar or one that has been present for years, we can help you improve its appearance and feel more confident in your skin.

Due to each scar being different, it is important to receive advice and a treatment plan to meet your specific needs and to best treat your scar and your concerns. A scar assessment will guide your treatment; there is no ‘one-size fits all’ approach to scars and therefore it is very important that each scar is seen as individual, and treatment is tailored to each specific case.

Your scar assessment and advice will be provided by one of our clinical scar specialists.

Following your scar assessment, one of our clinical scar specialists will be able to provide you with an effective treatment plan to best address your individual concerns.

At 152 Harley Street we pride ourselves on being able to provide an extensive list of different scar treatments for our patients. There are many treatments available including scar excision, subcision, laser therapy and scar creams.

"Saw Mr Ioannis Goutos for a scar on my hand using my insurance. Had a full hour with the doctor, which I believe is unusually long for a Harley street appointment, in a good way. I felt all my questions were answered. Questions I didn’t even know I had were also answered. I will use this same service for scars from any future surgeries. Thank you again!"

"The surgeon answered all of my concerns and I felt confident to undergo the procedure and came out feeling confident I received very good care. The staff and nurses gave me personal attention and were quite courteous, they readily gave me any information that I needed. They were particular in helping me go through all the steps I needed in preparation for the procedure."

"Relaxed, clean, calm, professional environment. I was made to feel both welcome and in very experienced and caring hands. Perfect."
