WHY IS MY SCAR CALLED “HYPERTROPHIC?”
A hypertrophic scar is a cutaneous condition characterized by deposits of excessive amounts of collagen which is why the scar becomes a raised scar. The skin is raised and thickened, but is confined to the margins of the original wound, unlike a keloid scar. These scars form most often when an injury occurs to the deep layers of the skin, such as at the sites of pimples, body piercings, cuts, injuries, surgery and burns.
Hypertrophic scars are usually also hyperpigmented (darker in color than the normal surrounding skin) and may appear with a reddish color. Due to the overgrowth of new tissue, hypertrophic scars may restrict natural movement of muscles and tendons, as well as reduce the flexibility of the skin.
Common treatments for hypertrophic scars include cosmetic surgery, steroid injections, topical steroids and antihistamines, dermabrasion, and laser therapy. Some hypertrophic scars may lessen over time without treatment, but can never truly resolve.
HOW DOES FUSION PHARMACY’S SCAR GEL WORK?
When applied directly to the affected area, Fusion Specialty Pharmacy’s specialized formula may help treat inflammation and discoloration. Hypertrophic scars may be reduced in size, and soften in appearance and texture when applied as directed.

SUMMARY: Caucasian female in her early 30’s presented with scars and stretch marks as a result of a recent pregnancy. Her c-section incision healed into a hypertrophic scar with red pigmentation and surrounded by stretch marks. Within a few weeks of daily application of her scar formulation of Fusion Specialty Pharmacy Scar Gel, the scar began to lose its color and raised texture. By 180 days of using Fusion Specialty Pharmacy Scar Gel, the scar had reduced in color and was flattened to the rest of the skin.
