Abstract: No one treatment is best (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C, meta-analysis of heterogenous studies); no good evidence exists comparing treatments with each other. Triamcinolone injections, triamcinolone injections combined with excision, and cryotherapy all improve hypertrophic and keloid scars (SOR: C, case series studies). Silicone gel products have weak evidence of efficacy (SOR: C, Cochrane review with no clear recommendation).
