White Shingles Scar
San Diego, CA
3 years ago
Hi! I have a scar from having shingles last year. It was very deep. After 8 months this is how it looks like now (there is a circle of white patch on the left side of my forehead). The depth was filled although it's still not smoothly flat, it's shiny, and it's white, which makes it stand out even with make-up... Our wedding is on May 2014 and I'm hoping to find a way to make the color even out and to make it smoothly flat. Hoping to find an answer on what procedures to take. Thank you! :)
