Treatment Options for Hypertrophic Scars

Hypertrophic scars are raised scars that remain within the confines of the original skin incision or trauma. In addition to being raised, a hypertrophic scar can also be red in color which makes the scar even more noticeable. While some hypertrophic scars will improve on their own over time, others may need treatment to reduce the size and appearance. Dr. Spence customizes treatments for hypertrophic scars based on the specific needs of each patient. One or a combination of the following treatments may be used for the removal or prevention of hypertrophic scars.

  • Laser: Laser therapy can reduce redness and improve the skin texture to minimize the appearance of hypertrophic scars. It is often used in combination with other treatments to reduce elevated scar tissue.
  • Dermabrasion and steroids: Steroid injections are effective in shrinking hypertrophic scars and can be combined with dermabrasion to smooth skin and reduce elevated scar tissue.
  • Compression garments: Pressure therapy using compression garments can help reduce the chance of a hypertrophic or keloid scar tissue growth after an injury, burn or surgery.
  • Tension free closure: To reduce the chance of hypertrophic scarring, tension-free closure techniques are used with any surgery or incision.
  • Silicone: Using silicone sheeting is an effective preventive option after surgery for incisions to reduce the chance of hypertrophic scars. It is worn 23 out of 24 hours a day for several months.
  • 5FU injections: 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) injections a chemotherapy drug to reduce fibroblasts that are typical in hypertrophic scarring. 5FU injections can be used with other treatments, like cortisone or laser therapy, for excellent results.

Dr. Spence uses the latest medical technology, techniques and methods for treating and removing keloids and hypertrophic scars. In addition, he understands the best options for preventing these types of scars from developing after surgery or after an injury to the skin.
