What would be the best treatment for a large hypertrophic face scar? My 6 year old had facial injury about 1.5 years ago. Since then, she had scar revision 8 months ago. The scars on her face have improved after revision, but are still quite pronounced. We have been doing massage and using various scar creams. What is a reasonable treatment to try without another revision? Would prp or micro needling be a good option for these scars?

The best combination treatment for your scar would be the V-Beam laser combined with intralesional cortisone for the raised areas. Please consult an expert in scar treatments. Best, Dr. Green
