Hypertrophic scars exhibit a higher prevalence within groups with darker skin tones. The Vancouver Scar Scale, patient and observer scar evaluation scale, high resolution ultrasound, Modified Vancouver Scar Scales, ultra-high frequency ultrasound, tonometry, multiphoton microscopy and laser Doppler imaging are considered to be optimal tools for measurement of scar. The therapeutic modalities employed for the hypertrophic scars management encompass surgical excision, application of ointments, the use of silicone gel sheeting, topical administration of steroids, utilization of topical 5% imiquimod cream, and application of topical vitamin E. Intraregional therapy encompasses many treatment modalities, such as verapamil, corticosteroids, botulinum toxin (BTX) and five fluorouracil. This research aims to explore the topic of hypertrophic scars, focusing on the many treatment techniques that are now accessible, with particular emphasis on the Botox utilization.
