Redness in Scar


Recommended Posts

I am trying to complete my SMP look but my scar is still red from scar revision surgery at Hasson and Wong. Anybody have suggestions on how to speed up the process of the scar being red and turning white so I can finish SMP on the scar?

it doesn’t appear red in pictures but it is!

How long ago was the revision? It can take a year or even longer for redness to subside and unfortunately sometimes it never does. I once had a client use a Fraxel laser to flatten his strip scars and also remove the redness. It was effective but this was attempted years after having the surgery. As far as applying topicals, my wife used Mederma and Scar Guard to help heal her C Section scar and it did improve it.

Thanks! My revision was not quite 5 months ago. 

Ok, I think you have a ways to go, especially on a revision. When it comes to strip scar concealment I've been addressing the entire donor zone so that it all blends seamlessly.

Scar tissue takes 12 months to heal. If you get SMP before 12 months it will fade away quickly. As someone else mentioned try using aloe vera and don't get an SMP before 12 months.
