Eyebrow Scar Removal and Waxing? (photo)

i recently had an accident and have to have 2 layers of stitches done on my eyebrows (one for the skin and one for the muscle) i got the stitches taken out about 2 weeks ago but i am wondering when i can start getting them waxed again? also if you have advice about permanent makeup or hair transfers to the eyebrow area? i need to see how to get this scar disguised as best as possible. I'm honestly really stressed about it.

You are only two weeks after the injury and repair. Allow the passage of at least 9 months. This scar should fade with time.

Scar revision for a large eyebrow scar


I would begin treatment with pulsed dye scar laser followed by surgical scar revision if necessary.  The pulsed dye scar laser can help with:

  1. Redness of the scar
  2. Hypertrophy
