Burn Scar Question: I have burn scar and wanted to know what the best treatment is to reduce the hypertrophied scar? Is it best to use scar creams or silicone sheets or both? Also, what is the best creams and sheets available?

Answer: To achieve the best possible outcome treatments for reducing the scarring of a hypertrophied burn would include both topical and scar sheeting. Topical scar therapy like Mederma would be used 1-2 times a day, meanwhile scar sheeting such as Curad Scar therapy would be best used at night! This will help the dark color of the scar fade plus help the bumpy scar flatten.

Although these two treatments will help reduce your scarring, please keep in mind that the entire process may take any where from 6-12 months, so be patient!
