Mole removal left concave scar on cheek. Any suggestions?
Mid Missouri, MO
1 year ago
I had a mole removal on my cheek 3 years ago, that left a 1" concave scar on my cheek. I have tried Voluma (that did nothing for the scar) I have had 1 profractional treatment (dr said I need 6 treatments in total) at this point I'm starting to feel discouraged. Am I on the right track with profractional treatments? Should I be trying something else? I realize I traded the mole for a scar but is there something that can make the scar flush with my skin and not so sunken in. Help!

This type of scarring can be improved with subcision, fillers and laser treatment. Often may need surgical excision though. I suggest consulting with a board certified cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer
