Advances in Scar Care: Treating Hypertrophic Scars and
Topical silicone gel sheets can help reduce the thickness, the height, the
size and the color of hypertrophic scars and keloids.
(press release from myfootshop)
February 4, 2006 -- Hypertrophic scars are elevated scars that do not
extend beyond the boundary of the traumatic or surgical wound. Keloid scars are
those scars that extend beyond the original injury and invade normal skin areas.
Both hypertrophic scars and keloids have increased color and thickness that pose
the risk of more permanent disfigurement or functional disability.
Traditionally, hypertrophic scars and keloids have been treated with
compression, steroid injections or surgical excision of the scar. Compression is
being used more often for small post surgical scars. Silicone sheets are used to
apply smooth compression to both the scar and adjacent skin. Over time, the scar
flattens and becomes level with the adjacent skin.
Dr. Jeffrey Oster is a foot and ankle surgeon who uses silicone sheeting as a
means of reducing scar formation. "Regardless of how delicately you treat skin,
some cases are simply prone to hypertrophic scar formation" Oster said. "Use of
silicone sheeting is a painless alternative to traditional scar management".
Topical silicone gel sheets can help reduce the thickness, the height, the size
and the color of scars. They can also smooth and soften the scar by blending it
with surrounding healthy skin. Typically, these products use a silicone gel pad
that adheres to the scar area, applying continued moisture and antioxidants.
These scar treatments can lessen redness surrounding the scar, maintain the
skinís moisture balance and elasticity, and reduce the discomfort of itching
that occurs along the scar lines. Silicone gel sheets are effective on fresh and
old scars, however, for fresh scars, scar reduction products should only be
applied after wounds have fully closed. Silicone gel sheets are easy to use at
home and require no prescription.
