Steroid Injections for hard scar.

Hi Barron. Steroid injections (such as Kenalog like we use) should work well. Steroids break down the scar tissue and flatten scars like you have. See the link below with photos of a textured scar that we were able to flatten out.

Secar revision under local anesthesia best option in my over internet opinion.. Seek a few IN PERSON consults with boarded pSs in your city. Fee range from $500 to $2,000..
