Thank you for the questions.
Without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of any treatments it is difficult to be comprehensive.
Most often I have patients wait at least 6 months to see how well the response to the first treatment was. This is more conservative and allows the scar to mature (good thing).
Some physicians wait 12 months.
