Across all types of scar removal, Melbourne Laser & Aesthetic Centre has led the clinical scar reduction industry with proven success. From traumatic scars to surgical scars and acne scar treatment, Melbourne Laser & Aesthetic Centre directors aim to bring an optimum level of improvement to patients who seek to minimise the appearance of scarring. 

Over the past 15 years in the field of scar removal, Melbourne Laser & Aesthetic Centre directors have focused on reduction and remodelling as a specialised area of practice incorporating various techniques. Scars may be treated with single methods or combined methods which may include mixed fractionated laser resurfacing, fractional radiofrequency treatment and skin needling. Other laser technologies may be incorporated that target specific colours within scars to achieve a more even skin colour. Dermal fillers, dermal techniques and topical applications may also be incorporated into a treatment plan depending on the scar condition.

The Dermal Clinician’s experience in treating scarring is essential in obtaining results. As each scar is a product of different causes and origins, each scar is treated individually based on a comprehensive assessment.

The centre directors are skilled in treating a broad catalogue of scar profiles, developing clinically proven methods in treating all types scarring. Both Senior Clinicians have pioneered across many cosmetic methods used in aesthetic practice, originally known for their work in Photorejuvenation and more recently with collagen induction therapy and now again with their scar revision methods, surpassing any conventional methods.

All patients are assessed, consulted and reviewed by either Ms Tania Caputo or Fognini throughout their individualised scar remodelling program.

Burn Scar Treatment

Improvements in lecture, colour, thickness, and contractions can be achieved with combination treatments.

Fractional Laser, RF and skin needling are all used - the combination of techniques and technologies are used by co-directors and clinicians.


  •  Fractional resurfacing - Advanced Fractional MY laser resurfacing reduces scar thickness and surface irregularities in post-burn scars. Fractional RF is also safely used on dark skin tones. Fractional RF is very efficient in also improving the elasticity of post-burn scars and reduces scar adhesions and contractors, improving flexibility and functionality. 
  •  Skin needling or collagen induction therapy has been shown to reduce the appearance of burn scars
  •  Laser treatment for uneven pigment colour through the scar

Tania Caputo and Tania Fognini have worked closely together with the Department of Justice compensation cases to improve burn scars. For further information please call 03 8686 5786 to arrange a consultation.
