so i only started getting steroid injections in recent months but i've had these hypertrophic scars for YEARS (5 years, maybe a little less) has anyone who started treatment late been able to flatten them out substantially at least? will there still be discoloration in that area?

I've had hypertrophic scars on my chest and shoulders for years too. I started getting shots in I think January and they're slowly but surely flattening. Some are completely flat but the redness didn't fade at all. I'm praying laser will get rid of the redness.

I will be depressed for life if they can't get these scars off my body
