If you don’t like the way your scar looks or it’s causing you discomfort, there are treatment options:
Silicone Sheets – You can buy silicone sheets from your pharmacy. These can be placed over a still healing scar to reduce inflammation. They should be worn all day for at least three months to obtain maximum benefit.
Pressure Dressings – These stretchy, elastic bandages can be used in conjunction with silicone sheets to smooth scars.
Corticosteroid Injections – If you have a hypertropic or keloid scar then you could have steroid injections to flatten the scar tissue.
Laser Treatment – Laser beams can be fired at the scar to break up excess scar tissue.
Dermal Fillers – Dermal filler injections can be given to ‘fill out’ pitted scars.
