Plato's Scar Serum and intralesional therapy for your scar

I would recommend a combination of Plato's Scar Serum, vascular laser, and intralesional injection therapy.

Hypertrophic Scar/Keloid -- Pulsed Dye Laser/VBeam, 5fu/steroids, Fraxel/Viva, CO2, Aerolase

I would suggest an in person consultation with an expert for evaluation. Hypertrophic scarring should be treated in a combination approach with lasers along with steroid/5fu injections. Best, Dr. Emer
