NEW SCAR TREATMENT FOR THICK SCARS

Tranilast 8% liposomal gel was shown to be effective in treating scars from cesarean sections. Patients were asked to treat half of their scars with this gel and the other half with placebo. Patients were much more satisfied with the Tranilast side.

Unfortunately, this treatment has not been compared to other treatments, including steroid injections and silicone gel sheets, but at least gives another option for patients with thick scars
