The scar team in Bristol
We offer help to anyone afflicted by scarring of the skin. We believe in an honest and holistic approach that is evidence-based.
Contrary to popular belief, not all scars are the same. And no scar will ever completely disappear. Scars can present a wide range of physical and emotional symptoms, which is why we believe in a team approach to deal with the problems that scars can cause.
The Scar Team, based at Nuffield Health Bristol, The Chesterfield, has over 100 years of experience in the field of scarring. We use a range of conventional and cutting-edge approaches to improve the appearance of your scar and how you adapt to it.
Led by Mr Jon Pleat, our scar specialists have been working together for many years within the National Health Service and now have a dedicated base at the Nuffield Health Bristol Hospital, The Chesterfield. Our main focus has been the most severe forms of scarring after burn injury.
Specialist procedures we offer in Bristol:
- Artificial skin
- Camouflage makeup
- Spray-on skin
- Injections for itchy skin
- Freezing treatments
The team also offers counselling and occupational therapy to help deal with the daily issues that scars can provoke.
