Expert dermatologists review latest thinking in scar correction techniques
Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/07/2015 -- Scar correction techniques have been improving in many ways over the last few years, as more and more research has been done. The actual process of scar formation is now very much better understood and as a result, more advanced techniques have been developed to treat them. These techniques have been so successful that the function of every scar can now be improved, whilst the majority of scars can also be significantly improved in their appearance as well. Scar correction techniques are discussed this week (06Jul2015) on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on webtalkradio.net, when show host, Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka talks with Dr Kavitha Reddy, board certified dermatologist from Boston University Medical School, Department of Dermatology, where she is Director of Dermatologic Surgery, and Director of Boston University Cosmetic & Laser Center. She is a recognised authority on scars and scar correction.
In this in-depth interview, Dr Lycka & Dr Reddy begin with a discussion about the development of scar correction and the approach they both take at an initial consultation to diagnose a scar and therefore to plan the process of correction and treatment that a scar needs. They both emphasize that treating a scar is a process which must evolve over time as the scar evolves, and they talk about all the different aspects of a scar that will need different scar treatment, including surgery, different types of laser scar correction, and other techniques as required including sometimes referral to physical therapists and even psychiatrists to help a patient deal with the mental effects of having the scar. The two doctors also ponder where scar correction treatment will develop further in the future, and sadly acknowledge that many of the breakthroughs in successfully treating scars have arisen due to the need to significantly improve treatment results for the many wounded and badly scarred military personnel who have survived horrific burns during recent global conflicts.
