Scar reduction treatments
Hello. Thank you for your question and photos! There are many different treatments to reduce the size and color of scar tissue. Generally, in my practice, I prefer to use a combination of Microneedling (works very similar to a fractional laser in that it breaks up the scar tissue) and a Genesis laser (which does a good job of reducing the redness in the scar tissue). However, if this scar is keloid tissue, steroid injections may be a better option. Before you decide on a procedure, it would be best to have an in-person consult with an expert who can evaluate the scar tissue itself. I hope this helps, and good luck!
