Scar Fading Takes Time
Hi Bharath! thanks for your question! scars on the face are always disturbing and we want them to fade away as quickly as possible and hopefully become invisible. However, scars are permanent and cannot be removed by any method currently known. however, scars do naturally flatten and fade over time (usually 6-12 months) hopefully to flesh colored or white. at 6-8 weeks your scar is likely at its worst. your best course of action at this time is to have a consultation with a skin specialist as you mention or a board certified plastic surgeon to see if your scar is behaving normally for its age and location and to see if any additional treatment could speed your scar's recovery. possible treatment options include topical scar creams, pressure massage, laser or IPL treatments and even scar revision. wishing you a speedy recovery and a scar that is flat and minimally noticeable!
