Hypertrophic Treatment in Plano, TX & Desoto, TX

Hypertrophic scars are thick, raised scars that develop where the skin is injured. Unlike keloids, hypertrophic scars do not extend beyond the original wound, but they can be red, raised, and uncomfortable. They commonly result from surgeries, injuries, or burns and can be especially prevalent in areas of the body where skin is tight, such as the shoulders or chest. The formation of these scars is part of the body’s natural healing process, where excessive collagen builds up at the site. Although they may decrease in size over time, many remain visible without intervention.

For individuals dealing with hypertrophic scars, several effective treatments can reduce their appearance and alleviate discomfort. Treatments such as silicone sheets or gels, corticosteroid injections, and laser therapy are available and significantly improve the skin’s texture and appearance. Depending on the treatment method, patients will see initial results within a few weeks, with more significant results appearing gradually as the skin heals and responds to treatment. We recommend booking an appointment at Noble Cosmetic Surgery in Plano, TX & Desoto, TX, with our professionals for lasting results and advice on your condition.
