Pressure Garments & Orthotics
It is well known that gentle pressure on raised scars can be very effective. The most effective way of providing pressure is through custom-made pressure garments. The part of the body to be treated needs to be carefully measured and a garment of elastic material is made to fit over the scarred area to apply gentle pressure e.g. as a vest or a pair of shorts or as an arm sleeve.
For areas where pressure garments don’t apply effective pressure e.g. the face, we may use splints, special inserts or orthotics to effectively put pressure on these scars to flatten and soften them. This service is provided by our Clinical Scar Specialist or one of our Orthotists at The London Scar Clinic.
“This treatment is often combined with a silicone gel treatment and garments can be made that contain silicone sheets, which further flatten and reduce irregular scars”
