pulsed dye laser to reduce redness and improve appearance. This can be
combined with or followed by in subsequent session a fractional laser -
either ablative or non-ablative depending on physician assessment.
Intralesional injections of 5-fluorouracil can be used on any thick areas. There are many
treatment options and I think very significant potential for improvement
in these scars - I encourage you to seek treatment. During this time you can continue to use silicone - there are a number of clear silicone gel products available such as Biocorneum.
