Active FX for Hypertrophic Arm Scar?
I have a hypertrophic scar on an arm. One is two inches long, right below the fold of inner forearm. I had one Fraxel treatment, which did nothing. The dermatologist said that ablative lasers aren't recommended anywhere other than face, due to low blood flow and slow healing. I read that silicone sheeting should be used after ablative laser or chemical peel, with guaranteed results. It's lighter in color and raises up quite a bit every time I fold my arm. Will Active FX improve this scar? Is it even possible to reduce scar by above 50%?
