Best treatment for a white hypertrophic scar?

Recommended Posts

I've been to several dermatologists and plastic surgeons. I'm being told different things. A couple have said dermabrasion would flatten it out and make it almost imperceptible.

Others have said the only thing that can help the scar is one treatment with a Fractional CO2 laser.

Does anyone have any experience with a white hypertrophic scar or hypertrophic scars in general? I'm not really sure who I can trust on this.

Will either of these even make a difference?

I would just do a series of say 5 to 6 aggressive microdermabrasions on that one spot. I had some hypertrophic scars on my shoulders and the microdermabrasions really flattened them out. Once the scar is smooth with the skin, and if the whiteness bothers you can get a cosmetic tattoo to blend in some flesh-like color there if you like.
