Peeling Cream to Remove Tummy Tuck Scar?
I had my Tummy Tuck 8 months ago. The scar is flat and I thought it was healing correctly but it is really dark. It is about 1/4" thick and clear in the middle but dark on the edges. Reading on the internet, I think this is called hyperpigmentation. I am trying a cream with Vitamin A and hydroquinone, and so far has peeled the first layer of skin but the darkness of the scar is still there. Will this ever go away? Am I going to keep this scar looking this dark forever? Am I doing the right thing? Thanks.
Hyperpigmentation tends to get better over time.
