There are four main types of facial scars: Acne scars, Keloid scars, Contracture scars and Hypertropic scars. The various treatments that target these conditions include: Dermaroller, Micro needling, Injections, Cosmeceuticals and Fillers. Keloid scars may be the result of an aggressive healing process. They usally extend beyond the original injury. A keloid scar may also hamper movement and feel uncomfortable. Steroid injections or silicone sheets can be used to flatten the scar. Small keloids can be treated using cryotherapy (freezing therapy using liquid nitrogen). These scars are most common among people with dark skin. If your skin has been burned, you may have a contracture scar. These scars tighten skin and may also go deeper affecting muscles and nerves. Hypertrophic scars are raised and red. Treatments include steroid injections to reduce inflammation or silicone sheets which flatten the scar.
