Scar camouflage or treatment for Asian skin with breast augmentation scars?
Thank you for your question. Remember, it is best to be seen in person by a double-board-certified plastic surgeon for precise diagnosis and treatment.
Scar treatment in asian skin
Thank you for your photo. Asian skin often hyperpigments at the incision line after surgery. Since you are two years out, you may need more aggressive lightening treatments to remove the pigment. These include intense-pulsed light therapy and/or a combination of a microneedling with bleaching agents to lighten the skin. Tattooing may make the scar appear darker and may be counterproductive. It is important to have an in-office examination to determine your skin type to see what treatments are best for your skin. Jumping into the wrong treatment or the "newest" thing may even make your scar appear worse if your skin type is not taken into account. Hope this helps!
