Scar Management

Why Do You Need Scar Management Treatment?

Any severe injury, burns, surgery or an accident can leave you to survive with the dark scars for life. These marks never let you forget the trauma. Having said that, with years passing by, these scars fade away to a significant level. Well, technology has made it convenient for us to quickly get rid of them. There are different types of scars, such as Keloid, Contracture, Hypertrophic, and Acne scars. Therefore, the treatment options our expert dermatologists suggest depend upon the type of scars you have.

What Is The Procedure For Scar Management?

If you are suffering from small Keloid scars, then it can be effectively treated with cryotherapy which involves freezing the area with liquid nitrogen. Other than this, scars can be reduced using pressure treatment or gel pads with silicone. In severe cases, you can go for skin grafts, excision, dermabrasion, and laser surgery.

Patients with burns can be treated with skin graft which involves using skin from another part of the body. If you have the scars due to some surgery, then it’s better to wait for them to be faded and don’t indulge in one more surgery of scar management. Many scars caused by surgeries become less noticeable over time.
