This section of the forum is dedicated to discussions addressing linear scars, depressed scars, keloid scars, hypertrophic scars, and other facial reconstructive topics. (Of note, Dr. Lam no longer accepts medical insurance so he rarely manages cancer reconstruction or trauma anymore.)
Got hit on the head playing basketball causing a big scar right above my right eyebrow. It is wide, raised and red, the scar really bothers me because its in the front part of my face so its obvious and noticeable, would scar revision help make my scar less noticeable or what would be the best option for me? I've been using NewGel+, KeloCote and Mederma for about 8 months since its happened but I am not happy with results so far. Pictures Below.

sorry for the late response. this is a hard one. i would probably not recommend scar revision because i just see an area of hypertrophy. i would probably try Pulsed Dye laser or KTP laser first on it. i would also consider better scar creams except the kelocote is good. i recommend scar recovery gel and regenica on it. s.
