Improvement of scars: Scars can be secondary to accidents, burns or surgery. These behave differently and if the wounds get infected then there is another variable that will impact scarring. Scars mainly improve with time but addiing scar care creams, sunblock use, silicone gel sheets, compression, laser or light therapy and sometimes scar revision are modalities that can help make things better.
