Options for new and old breast scars
Massage Plato's Scar Serum on the scars followed by IIT and lasers. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles
Scar on Face/Body -- Lasers (Fraxel, Co2, Erbium), Microneedling/PRP, Subcision, Fillers, Tattooing
Vascular lasers and fractional lasers are used for redness and pain/symptoms in scars. Yellow laser, pulsed dye laser/vbeam or IPL are a good start. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
It is unlikely that your incision will improve any more. A scar revision might help, but it may make it worse long term too. Best of luck.
What options do I have for scars ? Still very pink, itchy and stinging sensations
Hello Labby,The fact that your scars are still itching indicates they still have activity present. I agree that topical silicone can be quite effective but in your case you could still benefit from treatment. Anytime there is activity in a scar (which is present when you have itching, widening, or pain), then there are injections which can help calm this down. Once the symptoms are gone, then you can evaluate your scar to determine if an actual scar revision treatment would help. Since your plastic surgeon has mentioned any of this you may consider getting a second opinion elsewhere. If you were comfortable with your plastic surgeon then following up with him or her is recommended.I hope this helps and good luck.
