Background: The management of scarring (after acne, surgery, or disease) is an ongoing challenge.
Methods: This is the second of two reviews and will use a grading scale of disease burden to classify scarred patients. Treatment discussion will concentrate on procedures exerting effect on volume and surface changes and the effects of movement.
Results: Treatment relevant to the type and severity of scarring will be discussed and tabulated treatment plans outlined.
Conclusion: Severe grades of scarring often require a combination of filling agents for volume deficit, injectable agents for hypertrophic disease, neurotoxins to effect movement, and fractionated and ablative resurfacing for surface changes.
