Hypertrophic Scarring Post-Acne, What are my Best Treatment Options?
I had PDL laser done a few years ago. In areas that the laser hit active acne that I had at the time, it left hypertrophic scarring. The pimples that were hit by the laser never got a chance to recover naturally. I'm left with raised scars. I thought they would go away but it's been 3 years and theyre still here. The scars aren't raised very high but I can see them under certain lighting and it bothers me. What can I do to improve post-acne hypertrophic scars? Is it true Castor oil helps?
