DESCRIPTION

The Global Scar Society was formed to gain consensus for and promote best practice in the prevention and treatment of pathological scarring and to help direct future research. This webinar will discuss the current knowledge on the causes and risk factors for developing hypertrophic scars (HS) and keloid scars (KS), the best current surgical methods for preventing HS & KS, what adjunctive therapies are available for prevention and what therapies and techniques can be used for the treatment of HS & KS at different stages of their development. The webinar will illustrate current best practice through case presentations. In addition, there will be discussion around the direction of future research into new technologies for the prevention and treatment of scars. Scarring can cause physical and functional disability and may have a significant detrimental effect on patients’ quality of life, so it is important that clinicians bear in mind the impact of scarring on their patients. To this end, the webinar will also discuss the patients’ perceptions of scarring and the journey through their treatment.

Lastly, information will be presented on the mechanism of action and supporting clinical evidence for the use of silicone gel (KELO-COTE®) in the prevention and treatment of HS & KS. The webinar will conclude with questions and answers.
