Scars do get better with time but everyone heals differently and sometimes a procedure can help maximize the cosmetic appearance of your scar. A thickened scar can be injected with steroid to flatten it down. Depressed scars can be lifted with subscision or resurfaced with a laser like Fraxel. Redness in scars can be removed with the vbeam laser. Some scars can be sandabraded to blend into the surrounding skin. A mini excision may be beneficial to remove persistent bumps in a scar. A small surgical procedure known as a z-plasty can redirect the orientation of the scar to camouflage it better.
