Scars are typical recuperating process, therefore normal scars are not treated. Just when shallow scars turn out to be cosmetically unwanted or potential harmful then they require treatment. Scars are quite often analyzed by visual investigation. There are various uncommon circumstances when it might be important to analyze scar tissue under the microscope to affirm its actual character or to diagnose properly by biopsy.

Based on the types of treatment of scar, the market can be classified as follows:

  • Topical medication
    • Oil
    • Gel
    • Ointment
    • Silicone Gel Sheet
    • Cream
  • Laser treatment
  • Cosmetic treatment
    • Cryosurgery
    • Chemical Peeling
    • Dermabrasion
  • Surgical treatment
    • Skin grafts
    • Z-plasty
    • Skin Flap
  • Injectable treatment

The topical medicine segment can be classified as oil, gel, ointment, silicone gel sheet and cream. This segment is expected to experience exponential growth in near future due to its cost-effectiveness, easy application and easy availability.

Although the laser treatment is a bit expensive, but the faster and effective laser treatment provides better results with very less recovery time. These advantages contribute much higher adoption of ablative, fractionated and non-ablative laser for scar treatment. The cosmetic treatment can be classified as cryosurgery, chemical peeling and dermabrasion. These procedures give rise to smoother skin by eliminating top layer of skin.

Skin grafts, Z-plasty, skin flap are some of the surgical procedure which involves incision for removing scar tissues; however the high cost and chances of formation of additional scar restrain the growth of surgical procedure, henceforth the preference is expected to get decreased in upcoming years.

Steroids, collagen, and other fillers can be injected to obtain smooth skin by eliminating inflammation. This is a temporary solution which needs repeated treatment. The immediate visible result, rare side effects, shorter time process makes this segment growing.

 Scar Treatment Market

Scar is developed on the skin during body’s wound healing process.  The smaller scars generally gets healed on its own, but the larger one needs to be treated by any medical means. The area where the scar evolves is associated with itchiness, pain, redness and irritation. The difference among the scars are due to variation in size, shape and texture. The segmentation of scars are as follows:

  • Atrophic Scars
  • Keloid Scars
  • Hypertrophic Scars
  • Contractures

Hypertrophic is the most common type of scar with raised pattern, not characterized by any malignancy and get resolved by its own, whereas keloids which are much larger in size, elevated in shape and can be developed in any part of the body where there is any injury. Keloids are anticipated to affect both sexes and normally evolved from insect bites, surgical incision, burns or any injury. The dark-skinned people are more prone to keloids. Atrophic scars are associated with skin diseases mostly acne and they are flat in shape. Burn is the source of contracture scar, which confines the motion because of skin and surrounding tissue that force together amid mending.

As per research study, acne is supposed to be the eighth most prevalent disease around the globe due to changing lifestyle, improper diet, excessive stress and hormonal imbalance. The acne treatment involves a vast medical application from surgical incision to cosmetic procedure to topical medicine. Therefore, atrophic scar segment is expected to dominate the scar treatment market. The public health awareness, consciousness for physical appearance and healthcare expenditure in turn boost up the surgical procedures number in the developed nation which leads to contribute significant growth in scar treatment market. Keloid may turn out to generate serious complications at later stage, so early treatment is preferred and recent development of technologically advanced medical devices or pharmaceutical industry attribute to the growth of the scar treatment market. 

 Scar Treatment Market

A scar is an appearance of the skin's mending procedure. Scar can be a result of any surgical procedure, burn, injury etc. which can involve application of various medical technology. Depending on the end-user types, the scar treatment market has been segmented as follows:

  • Hospital care
  • Private Clinics
  • Drug store or retail store
  • E-commerce

Scar Treatment Market

The hospital segment dominates the scar treatment market in terms of market share followed by private clinic and the reason behind it is the usage of topical care medicines, laser operations and surgical incision mostly performed in hospital. The increasing trend of cosmetic procedures performed in private clinic is boosting the growth of clinic segment and estimate to face lucrative growth in near future. Moreover, the easy availability and lucrative discount option on topical medications from retail drug store or from e-commerce boosting the significant growth to these segments.

Geographically, the global scar treatment market is cumulative to North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

Scar Treatment Market

North America is predicted to have the largest share in scar treatment market followed by Europe. According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons, around 181,000 scar revision procedures were performed in the year 2016 which was increased by 1% from 2015. This increasing trend of scar revision procedures along with highest expenses in personal care products, rising aging problems, increased awareness about improved physical appearance, growing adoption rate of technologically advanced procedures and products, regulatory approval of various products are few of the factors that drive the scar treatment market largely in these regions. The huge number of population suffering from skin disease and developing healthcare infrastructure fuel the growth of the scar treatment market in Asia-Pacific and it is expected to face substantial growth in upcoming periods due to the growing trend of consumer awareness.

The detailed regional classification of the global scar treatment market is as follows:

  • North America (U.S. & Canada)
  • Europe (Germany, U.K., France, Spain, Italy and Rest of Europe)
  • Asia Pacific (China, India, Japan and Rest of Asia Pacific)
  • Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, and Rest of Latin America)
