Depressed scar 3 weeks after trauma. What is the best course of action to resolve this? (Photo)
I incurred a facial laceration 3 weeks ago. I went to the ER and a PS sutured the laceration, stiches removed one week later. I have been doing scar massage, applying silicone sheets and sunblock. When I smile, the scar dimples severely, creating a deep depression. It seems like the scar has adhered to the underlying tissue. What is the best course of action to resolve this? Some doctors recommend early intervention during the remodeling phase while others recommend waiting for 6 months.
