Can Retinol Cream Help Reduce Appearance of a Scar That Resulted from a Laceration?
- Asked by d3borah

I was in a car accident about 10 months ago, from which I got a moderately deep cut right below my lip. It seems like it has healed completely, but has left a noticeable scar. The scar itself has a faded look but it looks worst than it is because it's pushing some skin upward, giving it a bumpy look. I was wondering if using retinol cream would help with this scar?? Could retinol loosen up that scar? Thank you.

Retinol itself will not recontour a scar. I would propose the following:
- Scar excision and layered closure
- Selective IIT
- Pulsed Dye Scar Laser
