Scars are unwanted results from injury or surgery. Often they cause undesirable symptoms as well as insecurity with their appearance. Taking good care of a wound can minimize the symptoms and unwanted appearance, but there are also treatments possible after the healing is final. One major way to take care of a wound is to minimize the amount of sun it receives. Some of the post healing treatments are as follows: Injections of triamcinolone (cortisone) or 5-fluorouracil, pulsed-dye laser treatment, Non-ablative Laser Treatment, Microneedling, Radiofrequency Microneedling, and Ablative Laser Treatment. Since there are so many treatments available in modern medicine, it is best to consult with your doctor who will be more than happy to help you determine what treatment will be best suited for the type of scar you are worried about.
