SkinCity India is the largest Super Specialty Skin Clinic in India offering solutions to all classical dermatology, cosmetic, hair and body problems under one roof. SkinCity has emerged as an authority on the treatment of conditions like Vitiligo, birthmarks and various scars. The success seen by SkinCity's patented protocols in the treatment of scars once thought untreatable like keloids and burn scars, is unparalleled.
06/01/2019, Sunday saw the brains of the Medical fraternity descend on Mumbai to attend the much coveted, first ever Scar Summit 2019 hosted by SkinCity's Post Graduate Institute of Dermatology in association with the Society for Lasers in Medicine and Surgery (SLIMS). The conference was well attended by over 320 delegates. Dermatologists, Plastic Surgeons, Maxillofacial Surgeons, General Surgeons and Clinicians from across India interested in the field of scar management met at the Lalit, Mumbai, to confer and concur on the best approach in the management of scars, their prevention, and treatment.
Scar management has always been a matter of opinion rather than protocol. Various approaches to scar management have been adopted by various experts based on their area of expertise. However, there is no formal consensus on the prescribed protocol in the management of scars. The agenda included discussion on wound healing, scar formation and miniaturization, medical management of scars, management of hypertrophic scars, acne scars, atrophic scars and stretch marks, keloids and the future of scar management.
However, the highlight of the conference and the most interesting and riveting topic by far was the session on keloids, addressed by Dr. Niteen Dhepe. Keloids are scars that display uncontrolled growth patterns with no effective solution at the present moment.
Dr. Dhepe, the host and innovator in scar treatment, presented his new therapeutic classification of the scar and scar-like conditions. He also presented his innovative 5 tier treatment technique using Ultrapulse CO2 fractional laser for the treatment of acne scars and his innovative technique of keloid treatment with fractional drug delivery using SCAAR FX technology and Enerjet JVR needleless injector. He also introduced two future technologies for the prevention of scars, which are fractional skin grafting and laser scar prevention.
The reviews from the participating delegates were very encouraging. Dr. Dhananjayay Chavan, one of the attending delegates, said that it was a very engaging and informative conference. In view of the overwhelming response, SkinCity declared that the war against scars is an ongoing one, not yet won and therefore has decided to conduct this academic event every year.
