I treat many periareolar scars with Melarase cream and then follow up with pulsed dye laser to reduce the redness of the scars. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles

Scar reduction sheets have been shown to have little effect on scars when studied in rigorous clinical trials. I would advise seeing a dermatologist with advanced training and expertise in laser surgery to discuss post-surgical treatment with lasers that can help improve redness and also reduce or blend the scar's appearance.
