Both psychosocially and functionally, hypertrophic scars and keloids can have severe negative consequences on patients. Patients with a history of dystrophic scarring should avoid unnecessary procedures and improve the wound-healing process by using various preventive techniques. Management should be tailored to the individual patient's risk factors, as well as the use of combination therapies to reduce recurrence rates. Despite this, keloid and hypertrophic scar therapies are widely distributed, with novel treatment techniques providing alternative methods for recurring lesions. Alternative treatments for the treatment of hypertrophic scars and keloids may be laser-assisted drug delivery, skin priming, and novel topical therapies.
