Scars Treatment: Q&AAsk a Question
What Treatment Would Help Mature Old White Scars?
I have scars over the length of my both of my arms from self injury as an adolescent. They are mature scars(approx. 15 years old)so they are white and of varying lengths and thicknesses. I have not tried to do much with them as I have been told there aren't very many treatments that would help.
At the moment I am trying a dermaroller but with little results.Would Dermabrasion work? Or perhaps a skin graft? I would like them to look more like an accident rather than self inflicted. melissa
Resurfacing / skin treatments will improve scars but you can get even better results with excision and then resurfacing
