The redness you are seeing a week after your revision is part of the normal wound healing process. The redness will fade over time and daily sunscreen use is highly recommended. A year ago, SkinMedica launched a scar gel that works extremely well in improving the appearance of scars and decreasing this redness much faster. My website has a link to purchase or you may call and we can ship you a tube if desired. It only runs $30. Do not waste your money on Mederma. Vitamin E also not better than just plain vaseline. Keep a good sunscreen that contains zinc oxide on it or bandaid if going outdoors.
