Plato's Scar serum twice daily followed by fractional lasers, IIT, and skin resurfacing are ideal for your scar.Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles
Scars continue to mature and improve over a year. Vitamin E has not shown to be consistently effective in improving the appearance of a scar. Silicone has been shown to be more effective. If it is still young and remodeling, you can continue treating your scar with various topical options such as silicone-based strips or gels and most importantly - keep them out of the sun. Overtime, your scar should continue to improve on its own. For both young and older scars that have plateaued in their improvement, microneedling, fractionated laser, and radiofrequency make microscopic holes in the scar to stimulate your body to remodel and fill in the scar with new collagen. Finally, a surgical excision and possible tissue rearrangement can break up the line of the scar, make the scar thinner, and improve its appearance. For the best treatment options, it is important to visit an expert for an in-person examination. Hope this helps!
