Speakers: Mr. Peter Moortgat, Prof. Cecilia Li, Ms. Eve Zhang, Ms. Effie Deng
This workshop will cover the scientific background of hypertrophic scar formation and share some updated theories on management of hypertrophic scar (HS) based on mechano-transduction and histological aspects of HS. Recent findings on non-invasive scar management including pressure therapy and silicone gel will be shared and discussed.
New concept of pressure-and hydration-intervention will be introduced and demonstrated. Pressure measurements will be illustrated using the pliance x pressure sensing system. Vacuum therapy and mechanical off-loading techniques (e.g. scar taping) on scars will also be demonstrated during the workshop.
