Acne Scars Treatment: Q&AAsk a Question
Mole Removal = Hypertrophic Scarring?
I had a couple of large moles removed (cut and stitched) last year from my arm/shoulder and back. Both formed hard, slightly raised shiny scar tissue, about 5mm wide and the length of the original wound. Does this sound like normal healing for mole removal? I ask because I have been seriously considering C02 resurfacing for acne scars on my face, but have read that it is not for people prone to hypertrophic or keloid scarring.
