Hello again doctors. Here is a scar I received during a bike ride as a 12-year-old. Unlike most of my scars, this one is hypo-pigmented. Any tips on improving its appearance? I am not looking for perfection, just improvement! I started my career in pharmaceutical chemistry: I understand there used to be a formulation with tar used on hypopigmented spots. Do doctors use anything similar these days?
