Hey Snowflake, me again. 

I'm sorry you're having a bad day.

I've had spot treatments with 2940 (Sciton Profractional).  Zero results. 

What about a filler?  Nothing permanent unfortunately (don't do silicone), but it might help.

Hey Snowflake, I've had a SmartXide spot treatment for two areas on my cheeks.  It cost me $150 CAD.  I think it helped a scar that was just over a year old but did nothing for some of my older scars.  I did not experience any adverse effects.  I'm Caucasian, btw.

The thing about an excision is that you're basically replacing a larger, more noticeable scar with a smaller linear scar. For optimal results it's best to blend the remaining scar in some 2-3 months after with something like dermasanding.


Yes, I'm prepared for that if needed. However, right now my main concern is the raised areas I see beyond the scar itself. I'm wondering if it could still be swelling at 2 weeks post and if it will come down at all.

I'm feeling really down at the moment.  I'm one week out from stitch removal.  There is no hole, thankfully.  However, the entire area looks quite depressed and/or the ends of my incision are very bumpy.  The whole thing looks gross IMO.  Any one have any advice?
