Laser Therapy vs Traditional Scar Ablation Methods

I recently reviewed an article titled "Polyurethane Dressing in the Treatment of Hypertrophic Scars in Comparison to Silicone Sheets." Currently, these are conventional approaches in the treatment of hypertrophic scars. Other therapies include intralesional corticosteroid injections, interferon, surgical therapy, radiotherapy, and cryotherapy. Without personally utilizing most of the conventional therapies currently in vogue, one might deduce that the reason for this is, that they are all equally ineffective. Whenever there are many different treatments for one condition, generally all are less than effective.

An overwhelming body of literature indicates that all these approaches are equally unrewarding with regard to results.

At Meditech, we find that scar ablation can be rapidly accomplished using the appropriate low intensity laser therapy protocols prescribed. Clearly, low intensity laser therapy, as in many other conditions, should be the treatment of choice for the ablation of scars and hypertrophied tissues in general.
