Skin and venereal clinic N4, St.-Petersburg, Russia.

The scope of physical methods for correcting the pathological skin scars is rapidly growing but the results of their use are often unsatisfactory. An inadequate approach to therapy without taking into account the assessment of their effectiveness leads to relapses, increased growth of scar tissue or the absence of a clinically significant effect which requires strict scientific evidence in the course of benign scientific studies.

Objective: Scientometric analysis of evidence-based studies on the use of therapeutic physical factors in the correction of post-acne scars. Read More
