Indian doc developed new technique to treat scar and wound

10, October 2018 – Eminent facial plastic surgeon, Dr Debraj Shome and dermatologist Dr. Rinky Kapoor have developed a new technique to treat complex scars and surgery wounds. The new study has been published in the prestigious international peer reviewed ‘Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal’ of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. 

The study was conducted amongst 100 patients, with face and neck scar sizes varying between 1-7 inches wide, over a six month period in the age group of 19-47 years, where it was observed that 76% patients showed considerable improvement (meaning scar appeared to have blended with the surrounding skin). The scars showed more than 80% improvement, after 6 months of treatment.

Dr Debraj Shome, Director, The Esthetic Clinics, said, “The study assumes importance considering that there have been very few techniques invented to improve complex wound healing and scar treatment, especially amongst colored people, of Asian Indian, African & Hispanic origin in the last three decades. There is no study till date that has used Botox in this radical manner that we have utilized for scar healing. There are studies in which has Botox has been used for keloids, but never for normal scar healing and prevention of widened scars and for improvement of scars. This is the first time in the world this has been done. This research will mean scars and wounds all over the body can now look better in those individuals, in whom the presence of melanin (dark skin pigment) impacts wound healing.”

The treatment regimen comprises of a combination of botox injections injected two weeks prior around the scar, followed by scar revision surgery, topical application of a cream containing Centenella Asiatica (a herb native to Indian subcontinent) for at least 6 months post- surgery and multiple sittings of carbon dioxide laser skin resurfacing.

Facial scars occur following wounds, previous surgeries, or are caused by injuries such as burns or acid attacks or facial trauma. Widened facial scars remain a stigma and both patients and the surgeon end up disappointed. Facial scars heal poorly because of continuous movement of the facial muscles, which impacts the wound healing and scar maturation process, leading to wider and more depressed scars.

The fundamental concept behind the technique is to eliminate the tension caused by local muscles on the wounds by temporary paralyzing the facial muscles via botox which assists in the long term wound healing process.
