Had fraxel repair done on my scar 2 months ago, still red please help!

Recommended Posts

I have a strip scar on my head from a hair transplant surgery that I got done a couple years ago. The scar color is completely white. I was hoping to blend the scar in more with my surrounding skin with fraxel but my scar is now red. I’m 7 weeks post op from my first fraxel repair treatment and I don’t know what to make of this.

I thought redness would last around 2-3 days from what my doctor told me. She told me eventually, the redness will fade but I don’t see any improvement in the color. My scar is worse now than it was before the fraxel. I’ve been applying Vitamin E oil and hydrocortisone 1% sometimes to my scar but I don’t think its helping much. Please help. I’ve taken a step back from my goal and now I just want my scar to be white again.
