Skin is the largest organ of the body. It protects the valuable organs like a fine cloth. Any injury, burns, trauma, and surgeries cause scars. In some cases, if the scar is small it can be concealed, over a period it starts diminishing whereas big scars are always worrisome. The disfiguring scars are treated with many surgical and non-surgical options.
As the first task, the expert Skin specialist at VITALS KLINIC evaluates the scar. Soon after diagnosing the type of scar, the dermatologist will recommend the patient with the precise treatment. Based on the size of the wound, injury location, skin type, age, sex, and genetics, the clinical treatment option is determined.
Scars of different types are treated with both surgical and non-surgical interventions.
Topical therapy: Silicone sheet or gel is used to heal the skin to alleviate the redness, minimize hypertrophic or keloid scar. To get effective results, silicone sheet or gel will be placed over the scar for at least 12 hours per a day for three months consecutively.
Cryotherapy: It is otherwise called cryosurgery where extreme cold freezing temperatures is applied to treat or destroy the keloids. This therapy is done alone or combined with Intralesional corticosteroids to manage the hypertrophic scars and keloids.
Intralesional agents: Intralesional steroid injections containing corticosteroids reduce the scar formation by deterring the inflammatory condition with the aid of collagen synthesis or, mediators.
Ablative laser resurfacing: An intense light on the skin is delivered which helps removes the outer layers of the damaged skin.
Non-ablative lasers: By destroying the blood vessels and use of lower sub-purpuric stimulates collagen remodelling, it will softens and decrease the redness of the scar.
Dermabrasion: This technique is used to level and smooth the abnormality of the scar surface and uneven edges of the skin.
Microdermabrasion: This procedure is performed using a pressurized stream of aluminium oxide crystals in the treatment of superficial acne scars.
Fusiform/elliptical excision: It is an effective way to remove lesions with deep and lateral surgical margins. The excision shape lends itself to a linear repair that can be aligned for a pleasing cosmetic result.
Skin graft: In this method, healthy skin is removed from a particular area of the patient’s body and transplanted to the scar area. Mostly from the upper arm, forearm, leg, inner thigh and buttocks the skin is grafted.
Skin Flap-: It is similar to skin graft where tissue is transplanted. The main difference is the flap exists on its own blood supply which means a larger amount of tissue can be transplanted including muscle in the required case.
