Hypertrophic Scars & Keliods

1. Which technologies are implemented and executed behind Hypertrophic Scars removal treatment?

During the process of healing post trauma or surgery, sometimes, we develop unsightly scars. They are two types of scars which are of greatest concerns are the hypertrophic scars and keloids.

Hypertrophic Scars:

Post-trauma, surgery, or conditions like acne and chicken pox which usually take longer than 3 weeks to heal can sometimes develop into scar tissues. Hypertrophic scars are usually raised and are confined to the areas of the wound. It can occur over any part of the body. Usually, they resolve on their own but on most occasions, they require medical intervention and usually respond very well.


This is derived from the Greek word ‘Cheloides’, meaning crab claw. These scars occur due to an exuberant tissue response at the healing site. This condition is usually hereditary and seen over the bony prominences like the chest, shoulder, upper back, arms and earlobes. These scars usually extend beyond the area of the wound. At times, they can be associated with itching or a burning sensation. The sooner they are treated the better they respond to the treatment.
In both the cases, the treatment depends upon the size of the scar, the location of the scar, the age of the patient, and the depth of the lesion. The treatments which are generally used for these scars are –
CO2 Laser
Cryo Therapy
Intra Leisional Injections

In the laser procedure, shot beams of laser light are used in the procedure which penetrates the skin and restores the skin’s supportive structure. In the process, the natural healing sheds off the old skin and starts building the new layer of the skin with collagen and elastin.
