The London Scar Clinic is one of the country’s only scar treatment centres; we have assembled a dedicated expert group of Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists and Allied Healthcare Professionals to offer a comprehensive and holistic approach to the effective assessment, prevention and treatment of scars.
Some scars settle down over time to be virtually unnoticeable, but some scars remain troublesome and noticeable. Although it may not be possible to fully remove scars, we aim to significantly improve scars by making them less visible and problematic. Our team understands that a scar can have a significant impact on the patient’s quality of life no matter its size, appearance or location.
There are different types of scars with different characteristics; they often demand more than one treatment type from different professionals in order to maximally improve their look and feel and reduce any impact on function and well-being. Therefore a successful scar treatment journey involves a team approach.
We offer the broadest range of effective options to people who have been affected by scarring through expert assessment and treatment.
From your initial consultation right through to your treatment and aftercare our team of specialists at The London Scar Clinic are there to support you every step of the way. Invasive treatments are those where access to the body/scar is gained via incisions or handpieces of medical grade instruments. Minimally invasive treatments refer to procedures performed through smaller incisions such as needle punctures; these procedures tend to have a quicker recovery period than invasive treatments.
Non-invasive treatments unlike invasive treatments do not involve breaching of the skin or removal of tissues. Non-invasive treatments are considered conservative methods which have much less downtime, if any, associated with the treatment. Non-invasive treatments are a common first step in your scar improvement journey, especially if you are still in the initial stages of scar formation and healing.

"Saw Mr Ioannis Goutos for a scar on my hand. 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!"
"Excellent experience through and through. Friendly staff and extended team. Mr Leon-Villapalos is an exceptional communicator and made me feel at ease throughout both of my procedures with him."
"Rae did an incredible job with medical tattooing a scar that had troubled me for some time. After being told by many that nothing could be done, Rae was confident she could help and it was a pleasant experience overall. Highly recommend."
