Our scar management services in Brisbane

HandsOn Therapy is dedicated to providing the best scar management services possible. We work with patients to create a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs. Our team is regularly trained in the most up-to-date management techniques as well as the use of new and emerging products.

Scar management is an important part of the recovery process for many people who have experienced an injury or have undergone surgery. The appearance of scars can be improved with treatments that are designed to help the body heal properly. At HandsOn Therapy, we offer individualised programs that are based on a thorough understanding of how scars form. This allows us to provide treatments that are specifically designed to meet the needs of each patient. Our goal is to help patients achieve the best possible results from their treatment and to improve the appearance of their scars.

Treatment will vary depending on the presentation and severity of the scarring and can include any or all of the following:

  • Application of silicone and other scar reducing contact media
  • External compression
  • Scar massage
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Measurement and fitting of customised pressure garments
