Many options. There are many different ways to try to improve the appearance of scars. The best place to start is with a consultation with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who can review the expected results with skin care, resurfacing procedures, injections or surgical techniques. Unfortunately this is often a difficult problem and you need to go in with the expectation of improvement, not perfection.
Scar tretaments. Several options are available for scar reduction: silicone gel silicone sheeting mederma kelo-cote scar massage tape a study in the journal of plastic and reconstructive surgery several years ago compared these and found that although none showed statistical significance for scar reduction, the one that had the best overall response was silicone sheeting. That is what I use in my practice.
Scar improvement. It depends on the type of scarring. Significant scarring can be improved , but not be erased. This may involve surgery, injections or topical treatments. There are some types of scarring that may respond to laser treatments.
