Is it possible to get rid of hypertrophic scars if they're at least a year old, without using lasers or surgery? Or drastically reduce appearance?
Scar treatment: Depending on the problem with the scar there are treatments to improve them but nothing will completely remove them. I treat pigmented scars with bbl to lighten them, thick scars with fractional laser to soften them, or bad or wide scars with surgery to cut out the scar and re-sew it a more cosmetically pleasing way.

What is the best way to get rid of ance scars?(without laser) I'm on Accutane 60mg and coco butter with vit E on at night. is there a better way?
Several options...: ...are available, but the most effective for deep scars, in my opinion, is laser abrasion, which smoothes out the edges of the scars to make them less visible. Other options include dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels - BUT don't try anything surgical until you have been off Accutane for at least 1 year. There is a risk of increased scarring, even after you stop taking it. ...Read more
Can I do lasers to get rid of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation while on isotretinion? Also laser scar removal?
Accutane: Absolutely not. Isotretinon prevents new skin growth. Any type of LASER treatment will likely burn your skin and cause long-term scarring. It is not advised to have any type of ablative or exfoliative treatment for up to 2 years after Isotretinon treatment has ended. This is a very serious chemotherapeutic drug and that is why it comes with a 17 page consent form and requires close follow-up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
