Scar formation is discussed along with definitions of the three most common types of scars: normal, hypertrophic, and keloid. Several current forms of therapy designed to reduce or eliminate scars are presented. The use of silicone gel sheeting is reviewed as a newer solution for the treatment of many types of lower extremity scars.
