John,

I am 17 months po. I am wondering if my scars have completed the healing process as my right one is still quite dark and very slightly raised. I have been using silicone tape and gel for the last 4 months, which I think have helped a bit.

Should I give it more time and hope they fade more or should I go back to my ps for revision or laser treatment?

I look forward to your reply

Thanks

Hi

Generally scars settle over 18 months. It sounds as though your scars on one side are a little over active or "hypertrophic". Silicone tape can help, and you should continue with this, probably even up to 2 years, as they might improve. This is the only treatment you can have. This is a reflection on your genetic scaring. Is the scar itchy or painful? A scar revision will produce the same scars- so no use at all. In my experience, lasers may make them even worse.

so - they may improve still, but you may just be prone to that sort of scarring- even if it is only on one side.
