Raised skin around initial scar? (photos)
Los Angeles, CA
1 year ago
The skin around my scar looks to be normal skin but is raised. I'm unaware if this skin is also apart of my scar. My scar is completely flattened now. It's been almost a year since stitches were removed. I've being using silicone gel sheets and oil to treat my scar. My question is how do I flatten the raised skin on the top and bottom of my scar? Should I have a procedure done or is there another form or cream or treatment I should be using? Thanks.

I would suggest an in person consultation with an expert for evaluation. Hypertrophic scarring should be treated in a combination approach with lasers along with steroid/5fu injections. Best, Dr. Emer
