Scar After Facial Excision
Scars can form from any type of surgery. This is the typical look after 7 days, post suture removal. Typically I have patients use Biocorneum three times a day. After 2-3 weeks if the scar isn't less red we do a combination of Excel V laser treatment (which treats the scars redness) and either Fraxel Dual non-ablative laser resurfacing or ActiveFX ablative laser resurfacing (for the texture). But honestly, after 6 months this will be much less noticeable, likely inperceptable. However, it is common to have a scar like this after cyst excisions. I wish you the best of luck, Dr. Emer.

Yes, your scar does not look so good at present. You might try some Kelocote or bioCorneum on the scar twice a day and apply and let dry. The bioCorneum has both silicone and sunscreen so that is a good choice. Do this for 4 months and no surgery. After 6 months a revision can be tried. The antibiotics are a good idea also but I doubt a significant infection. Nevertheless stick with the antibiotics. You will be fine. My Best, Dr C
