About the event
Millions of people develop scars from burn injuries, surgeries and traumatic events. Scars are known to have wide ranging effects on individuals.
· For example, facial scars have been shown to impact psychosocial functioning causing increased anxiety and self-consciousness,
· traumatic scars can have the potential to impair social functioning and emotional well- being, and
· burn scars have been shown to decrease physical functioning.

Recently, hypertrophic scars have been labelled the greatest unmet challenge both psychosocially and functionally to burn rehabilitation.
