Facial hypertrophic scarring is certainly not an uncommon event and can lead to significant aesthetic and functional problems. Its etiologies can range from thermal burns, facial trauma, infectious diseases, congenital deformities or tumor ablation. Many have described the prevention and treatment of hypertrophic scars, all with varying degrees of success. Using a form of pressure therapy, the custom fitted transparent facemask allows for precise determination of critical pressure areas and is cosmetically acceptable to patients. We have utilized this non-invasive modality in plastic surgery for the treatment of non-burn hypertrophic scars and have met with uniform success and patient acceptability.
