Moisture is key: Moisture is the key- silicone gels are the only proven therapy to help relieving redness and helping to flatten a scar. Luckily many products like scar fade are now sold over the counter (i have no financial ties to this product). Kelo-cote is also a great option. If these don't help see a facial plastic surgeon or experienced dermatologists for answers.
