New from Paris conf (IMCAS) A new way to treat scars – stubborn, raised (hypertrophic) and some keloid scars
New Device to Treat Scars
At the Paris conference, I saw a new way to treat scars, including the raised (hypertrophic) scars and some keloid scars.
Dr. Welf Prager (Netherlands) introduced a new device called the IntraLyse that treats these scars with long lasting results in 1-2 treatments. The device uses cold (cryogens) to freeze the scar from the inside after a small probe is inserted under or into the scar. This was very well tolerated by patients who expressed very little discomfort in the study. I always hesitate to describe pain levels unless I’ve tried it myself personally. 🙂 Contact the company for status of FDA approval in the U.S.
