Visible Facelift scars in front of the ear should be managed early as results will be best if treatments are started in the first 2 months.
While scar creams and massage do help and should be done, they are ineffective against red raised Hypertrophic scars.
If they are very red,angry ad itchy start with IPL or Intense Pulsed Light-I use the Max G IPL.
Once redness is reduced then I use the 1540 Non ablative Fractional Erbium laser. This is the best laser I have seen for reducing the bulk of scars and flattening the scar.
Avoid steroid or cortisone injections-they will cause tissue atrophy, thinning of the skin and blood vessel growth on the skin
