The two most common scar types that are treated at Aspire Care Clinic are keloid and acne scars. Keloid scars are usually a result of an aggressive healing process. Treatment for these scars typically involves injecting a steroid into the scar which helps to reduce the inflammation in the tissue.
Treatments for acne scars can be similar to treatment for keloid scarring, and can include the use of retinoid products. In Aspire’s cosmetic practice, acne scarring can be treated with facials and microdermabrasion as well as mesotherapy and fractionated frequency in advanced cases (for more information on these services, please see the cosmetic information area of the website).
At Aspire Care Cosmetic Clinic, scheduling a cosmetic consultation is hassle-free, and no referral is needed. However, if your concern leans towards a medical issue, we may guide you to our Skin Clinic. It’s important to note that for consultations with Dr. Wang in our Skin Clinic, an Alberta Health Services (AHS) requirement may necessitate a referral from a licensed medical professional. Examples of such professionals include medical doctors, audiologists, registered midwives, chiropractors, podiatrists, dentists, optometrists, physical therapists, and nurse practitioners. Additionally, please be aware that AHS may require a referral, and it may expire if you haven’t seen Dr. Wang within a year.
