I just wanted to know if skin pen is an option for a Tummy tuck scar?

It's me the one with the tummy tuck wound that was horrible. PS has recommended that I get skin pen treatment on my tummy tuck scar. Will this help my ugly scar?

There are less invasive way to deal with the scarring that can sometimes depending on the wound healing biology become thickened.

It is one of many options to deal with scars.  Generally, wait at least 6 months after surgery before using the Skin Pen microneedling.  Good luck.
