  • Why do scars appear?

    There is no scarless healing : The scar is the end point of wound healing (cicatrisation).

    Wound healing is a repair process, not a tissue regeneration, as the original tissue is always replaced by uniform fiber tissue – the scar.

    Wound healing takes place in 4 different phases:

  • Bleeding
  • Inflammation
  • Proliferation
  • Remodelling

  • Scar Formation: From a clinical point of view, the 4 phases of wound healing are divided into 2 phases of scar formation:
  • Scar Genesis: Bleeding/Inflammation/Proliferation
  • Scar Maturation: Remodeling
  • What type of scars are there?

    There a multiple different scar types: They can reach above the skin level (hypertrophic scars) or lies below the skin level (atrophic scars). Scars can have different shapes (linear of flat) and different color compared to the surroundings, i.e. they can be darker or lighter.

    What are the consequences of scars for us?

    The Scar Consultation :

    The core group : A detailed initial consultation with Dermatology or Plastic Surgery forms the basis for successful individual treatment.
    • Patients with stretchmarks and acne scars are primarily seen by dermatology.
    • Patient with postoperative scars, hypertrophic scars and Keloid are mainly seen by Plastic surgery
    Very often the patient is seen by dermatology and plastic surgery together in a multidisciplinary context.
    The special Teams : Depending on the findings of the initial examination other specialists are consulted such as:
    • Physiotherapy (lymphatic drainage, manual scar treatment…..)
    • Radiotherapy (postoperative radiation therapy)
    • Internal medicine
    • Mental Health
    • Make-up artist/Cosmetology
    • others ….

    Treatments (Scope of Service):

    1) Avoidance : The best scar is no scar. Through the development of new (minimally invasive) surgical techniques (e.g. endoscopic surgical techniques), longs scar are no longer needed in many cases. Laproscopic Unit.
    2) Prevention/Suppression:
    If a scar cannot be avoided, it should be as less noticible as possible: Golden CET rules (“Dermatological Secrets”)
    a. Consult before scar (stretch mark consultation at 2 trimester)
    b. Evaluation before scar (early systemic acne treatment)
    c. Treatment before scar (scar suppression after surgery/injury
  • Treat a scar as early as possible (i.e. after complete wound healing 14 – 21 days)
  • Combined treatment lines are the best
  • Treat a scar long enough (“as long as a scar is red, it can be improved”)
