The treatment of a scar depends on the cause of the scar, the duration of the scar, the type of scar, the position of the scar,etc. Scars can be injected with cortisone or covered with silicone sheeting. They can be excised. Laser treatment works for some and IPL or needling for others. No treatment is an option. Now I have given you a lot of information. The message is hopefully clear-see a doctor with experience in the management of scars ie a skin specialist or plastisc surgeon. Treatment is always individualized.
