Abstract

Hypertrophic and keloid scarring is a known complication of dermabrasion facial resurfacing, although only a very small fraction of patients experience it. Treatment with intralesional corticosteroid injections and flashed pumped vascular dye laser is recommended in the literature. The treatment of keloid and hypertrophic scars using intralesional 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) injections has been well described, but there is no literature regarding use of the same treatment for postdermabrasion hypertrophic and keloid scars. In this case report, we describe a 67-year-old woman with persistent postdermabrasion facial hypertrophic and keloid scars that were treated at our scar clinic using intralesional 5-FU injections.
