Scars:

Scarring is a natural part of the healing process after we are injured.  It can occur from burns, surgery, and other types of trauma.

Here are some common types of scars :

  • Keloid Scars:This type of scar can be a result of an overly aggressive healing process. They are often raised  scars and can sometimes hinder movement for a patient.
  • Contracture Scars: Normally result from skin that has been burned. This type of scar can cause the patient to have difficulty moving as the contracture scar often tightens skin. It may also affect nerves and muscles.
  • Hypertrophic Scars: A raised and red scar,similar to a keloid scar, but different in that it stays within the boundaries of the injury site. 
  • Acne Scars:A very common type of scar that results from severe or moderate acne. Some acne scars are wavelike in appearance.

There are various reasons why scars develop differently from one person to the next. Factors that characterize the type of scar may include the depth, size, and location of the injury or wound.

Solutions for Treating Scars:

Compounded creams for the treatment of scars allow the pharmacist to combine the optimal dosage for a customized cream.  The pharmacist works with the patient and his or her physician to create a topical compound that can be used locally to minimize the appearance of scars.
