How can I treat my scar and scar tissue on my forehead? (Photo)

I got a pretty bad burn on my forehead when I was a child. Then it developed into scar tissue. I had the tissue removed by a plastic surgeon and got stitches. I have a scar from the stitches plus a some scar tissue that developed afterwards. It has really affected my self-confidence throughout my life. I'd like to know if there's anything I can do or have done to get rid of the scar tissue or at least flatten out my scar as it's on my forehead and very easy to see. Thanks in advance.

Fractional CO2, ReCell

I think that you should attempt gentle remodelling of your scars first. Co2 fractional is a good starting point, so is micro needling with PRP.

A closer examination is needed. Last resort, I have treated similar scars with ReCEll.

Melarase creams and Plato's Scar Serum + fractional lasers

Begin with application of Plato's Scar Serum, Melarase creams; followed by fractional laser, IIT, and micro needling with Co2.
