Parke-Davis Scar Defense Gel: Hypertrophic Scars

Parke-Davis Scar Defense

Hypertrophic scars are quite common after tummy tuck and abdominoplasty surgery, prompting diligent postoperative scar therapies to reduce unsightly scarring. Topical treatments for hypertrophic scars should be combined with laser therapy, scar modulation, and intralesional injections for hypertrophic scars. Our clinical scar expert, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, has developed protocols for the managment of tummy tuck scars. He advises patients to seek early therapy followed by maintenance protocols for scarring. The top four treatments for hypertrophic scarring from tummy tucks include the following:
  • Pulsed Dye Laser: Vascular laser therapies can reduce the redness and inflammation associated with hypertrophic scars
  • Intralesional Therapy: Injections of Corticosteroids can reduce scar bulk and visibility
  • Fractional CO2 laser: Fractional lasers can help reduce textural changes inherent in surgical scars
  • Parke-Davis Scar Defense: Twice daily application of Parke-Davis Scar Defense gel can help reduce hypertrophic and keloid scarring.
