What are the current solutions to prevent the formation of a hypertrophic scar or Keloidal Scar or obtain a favorable evolution of it?
I. Prevent by :
* Applying a moisturizer to maintain the flexibility of the skin, reduce redness and vascularization.
* Massage-kneading to break the fibrosis of the scar.
* Pressure clothes made to measure (wear at least 12 hours a day for 1 year. This technique is effective, however uncomfortable and particularly burdensome especially when hot.
* Applications of silicon films
For silicon plates, the mechanism most often mentioned is the hydration of the skin through the occlusivity. This moisture in turn reduces production of collagen in the scar and therefore less risk of hypertrophy. The application of a silicone dressing also reduces itchiness.
This technique can be used when the scar is hypertrophic or for keloidal scars.
II. When the scar is already painful:
* Surgical excision or laser (The risks of recurrence is an important cause of the development of hypertrophic scar);
* Corticosteroid injection within the scar (it is usually quite painful and the use of steroids may not be recommended in some patients;
* Applications of silicon films;
