Home / Services / Face Treatments / SCAR REMOVAL


Scar Removal at Maris Clinic is a skin condition that can be addressed by combining Secret Fractional RF micro-needling with Secret Erbium non-ablative laser treatment. The micro-needles penetrate the skin and create controlled micro-injuries that stimulate collagen and elastin production, remodelling the skin and reducing the appearance of scars. The Erbium non-ablative laser treatment targets scar tissue in deeper layers of the skin, promoting the production of new, healthy skin cells. This safe and minimally invasive treatment is effective for various types of scars, including surgical scars, acne scars, and stretch marks. Maris Clinic's experienced doctors and nurses provide professional treatment to deliver excellent results.


The Secret Duo device joins the technical benefits of Microneedle RF technology and a 1540mn Erbium glass laser.  Medical grade needles reach from 0.5 to 3.5 mm below the skin with great precision. Thereby increasing the results of clearing signs of scarring and ageing. The Erbium glass laser sends multiple columns of laser beams into the dermis, creating heat and collagen remodelling with no ablative results on the skin. As a relatively painless process with minimal downtime and is suitable for all skin types.

Before Care

  • Ensure your skin is clean before arriving at the clinic.
  • Do not use strong face peels, microdermabrasion, laser resurfacing or go in the sun for at least four weeks before your treatment.
  • Discontinue using Retin-A, glycolic acid, and Vitamin C before the treatment.
  • Avoid any hair removal treatments for seven days before the treatment.
  • Reschedule if a rash or blemish appears.


  • The first stage is to apply a numbing cream to the skin and wait for it to become fully effective.
  • Once the skin is numb, the Secret RF microneedling proceeds and is followed by the Secret Erbium device, which promotes collagen production in the scar area.
  • Using fractional tissue heating, your skin is safe and protected from heat.

After Care

  • You may experience some redness and minor swelling immediately after the treatment, but this will face within the first hour to 36 hours.
  • Most people will see significant changes from the first treatment.
  • Avoid wearing make-up for 48 hours after the treatment.
  • Using cold compresses can ease any discomfort.

Side effects

  • You may experience swelling, redness, tenderness, or sensitivity in the treated area.


  • Secret erbium refers to a type of laser treatment that can be used for scar reduction and removal.
  • The laser targets the upper layers of the skin, causing controlled damage to the tissue.
  • This stimulates the skin's natural healing process, which can lead to the formation of new collagen and smoother, more even skin.
  • Secret erbium is generally considered a safe and effective treatment for various types of scars, including acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks.
  • Compared to other types of laser treatments, secret erbium tends to be less invasive and requires less downtime for recovery.
  • Patients may experience some redness and swelling after treatment, but this typically subsides within a few days.
  • Multiple sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results, and the number of sessions required may vary depending on the severity of the scarring.
  • It is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of secret erbium with a qualified healthcare provider, as individual results may vary based on factors such as skin type and scar location.
  • Secret RF microneedling creates tiny microchannels in the skin using very fine needles that penetrate the skin's surface at different depths.
  • These microchannels trigger the skin's natural healing response, which promotes the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers, leading to smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
  • The Secret RF device also uses radiofrequency energy to heat the skin tissue, which further stimulates collagen production and helps to improve the appearance of scars.
  • During the treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin to minimise any discomfort.
  • The Secret RF device is then used to create microchannels in the skin, which may cause a mild stinging or prickling sensation but is generally well-tolerated.
  • After the treatment, there may be some redness, swelling, and mild bruising, but these side effects typically subside within a few days to a week.
  • It is important to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen during the healing process to protect the skin and maximise the benefits of the treatment.
  • Secret RF micro-needling treatment results for scars are typically seen gradually over time, with most patients noticing improvement after a few weeks to a few months.
