Scar Therapy

Scars are a natural part of the healing process. Unfortunately, scars don’t always heal as well as we would like them to, and they can have an effect your physical and psychological well-being. 

The Lymphatic Health clinic provides a range of non-invasive, evidenced based scar therapy treatments, as each scar is different. Scar therapy is highly effective in reducing scar tissue that can create a range of motion issues in and around surgical sites and injuries. Scars and adhesions can also disrupt the network of lymph capillaries that lie just under the skin and hinder lymphatic drainage. Combining MLD massage and scar therapy can not only stimulate and boost healing but also improve the flow of lymph fluid.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Facial
at The Lymphatic Health Clinic

Manual lymphatic drainage facial may include using adjunct therapies to maximise skin health. Performing Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) therapy increases the rate of detoxification and nourishment of the skin and underlying tissue. These effects continue after treatment because MLD clears congested tissue, vessels and lymph nodes enabling them to process inflammation and toxins more efficiently after treatment.

MLD is deeply relaxing, tapping into the parasympathetic nervous system and balancing hormones. The benefits are skin health and rejuvenation, the maintenance of skin elasticity and a youthful appearance. It is helpful in managing acne, rosacea, puffiness, and oedema after surgery.
