Scarring is the result of an abnormal pattern of healing in previously injured skin. Scars occur due to injury to the deeper layer of the skin, the dermis. Depending on the nature of the scarring and the body’s response, scars will be either keloid, hypertrophic (raised) or atrophic (depressed). Essentially, in hypertrophic and keloid scarring, too much collagen is formed whilst in atrophic scars, not enough collagen is generated.
A few principles apply to scarring:
► Depending on the nature of scarring, different treatments are needed
► If approached in the correct manner scar revision can be very successful
► Hypertrophic scars and keloid scars are as a result of excessive scar formation secondary to overzealous collagen production
► Atrophic scars are depressions in the skin caused by destruction of collagen during the course of inflammatory skin conditions such as chicken pox and acne
► Atrophic scars and acne scars can be treated with fractional radiofrequency, dermal skin needling, laser, subcision, chemical peels and fillers
► Surgical, traumatic and hypertrophic scars can be treated with fractional radiofrequency in combination with steroid therapy, dermal skin needling and laser resurfacing
