Start with a combination of Melarase PM and Plato's Scar Serum, followed by PDL and fractional laser to help smooth the scar. Finally, selective Kenalog IIT.

Surgery, lasers and micro-tattoo pigmentation can improve the look of the scar. It will take more than one treatment. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
