Options for helping scars to heal well
At 2 weeks it is very early in the healing process, but if the scars are raised, red, and thick, they may be heading in the wrong direction (called hypertrophic scarring). A series of laser or IPL treatments can be helpful early on. Also, keeping tape on the scars for the first 4-6 weeks, in areas where that is possible, can be helpful. It is too early for silicone patches or steroid injections.
