Hypertrophic facial scars? ENGLEWOOD Cliffs, NJ
In my opinion, I agree you have hypertrophic acne scars. Treatment for these scars usually begins with injection therapy. We have used steroids, 5-fluorouracil and Verapamil. Other treatments include steroid impregnated tape combined with micro needle rolling. In addition, silicone gels would be helpful. Should this not be adequate, ablative and non-ablative Laser as well as micro needling can be combined with the above treatment regimen. Multiple sessions are suggested. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Hypertrophic scars are best treated with a combination of lasers and intralesional cortisone injections. This is an advanced technique so please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Hypertrophic acne scars and how to treat them
These scars will not likely change much at all with silicone sheets. Steroids would give some help possibly. Each one would have to be treated and you might need multiple shots. The results could be minimal. You can cut them down with more aggresive approaches and this would be the best but also the most risky approach. We have a 5-7 step process done in about 2 hours that can treat this as well as other aspects of your scars. Our approach is very aggressive but gets real results.
