Will this develop as a depressed scar? (Photo)
1 year ago
This scar is now 11 days old.. It was glued together, but I feel the edges were inverted and now is developing as a depressed scar. I tried to see a plastic surgeon last week but they stated to let the scar team for 1 yr before any corrective surgery. Can you please advise?

I suggest a silicone gel with growth factors and you can start vascular laser treatments like yellow laser or pulsed dye laser at this time. Best, Dr. Emer
Its quite possible that this will lead to a scar. I would begin with conservative measures such as Melarase cream and Plato's Scar Serum.
