What are Hypertrophic Scars?
Although not as impactful as keloids, hypertrophic scars are still highly visible and can cause a significant degree of psychological distress. A hypertrophic scar occurs when too much collagen is produced during the healing process. There is also a risk that a hypertrophic scar will contain nerves and blood vessels, adding further complications when it comes to suitable treatment options.
If you have persistent hypertrophic scars resulting from an injury, burn or previous surgery, there are effective treatment options available from the International Keloid & Scar Treatment Center. Dr. Kenrick Spence and his team can provide a detailed assessment for patients from all over the world through a virtual or in office consultation.
During your hypertrophic scar consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss past treatments, expected outcomes and any risks associated with treatment. Dr. Spence understands that patients may have concerns about treatment that involves traveling to his Orlando office. During the consultation, Dr. Spence takes great care to ensure that every patient is comfortable and fully involved in the treatment plan decision-making process.
