Improving a breast scar from augmentation
I would opt for our Hidef Scar Protocol which includes surgical scar revision, PRP, fractional laser, and skin resurfacing.
Breast Augmentation Scar Treatment
Hi Bria. Thanks for your question. We would start with a medication called Kenalog. Kenalog is an injected steroid designed to soften and flatten the scar tissue. Your scars are colored and slightly raised but before we can treat the color, we need to soften them. One or two visits should suffice for that.
In many cases, using Kenalog solves the issue of color, but if not, we would then move to a V-Beam or V-star pulsed dye laser for redness.

This needs to be evaluated in person. A combination of lasers, microneedling/PRP and fillers may improve appearance, but surgical revision may be necessary. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
