Do the VBEAM Laser, microdermabrasion, and cortisone shots. If you attempt to shave, remove it, or have surgery it will make the scar worse and the healing time can be up to 6 months or longer. I learned the hard way =(

microdermabrasion will do nothing for raised scars. your options are surgical excision (which will leave a different scar), 5-fu injections, cortisone injections, silicone sheets, sometimes mederma or over the counter creams, pads, or sheets. and v beam may or may not help (ask your doctor) ive heard fraxel also sometimes possibly helps raised scars

i have some. I been told lasers but the laser horror stories are too hard to ignore.

I don't care if it happened to 1 or 99 person out of 100, but even that miniscule chance is too much for me.

Especially on my face where something going wrong can have disastrous consequences worse

than a tiny raised scar.

I have one on my chest. Did a steroid injection with IPL. Worked really well. It's almost unnoticable now.
