Punch Excision on Old Chicken Pox Scars Only Created New Scars
My surgeon used a dermal punch and closed each excision with 2 stitches. I am concerned that after six months the new scars are depressed and actually look very much like the scars that were excised, except that new scars also have lines running through them from the stitches. I was told that six months is too soon to be worrying, but I cant help it. I have been hoping that they may still fill in,but it doesn't seem likely, there hasn't been any improvement for 2 months. What is your advice?
