Do hypertrophic scars get better in time?

Recommended Posts

only with the proper treatment.

if you do nothing about them, then you have to rely on your body's natural healing process. They may get a bit better, but likely the tissue will harden and stay that way.

My name is LeiLani, I specialize in Facial and scar relaxation needling. I have helped many. I work closely with the VGH Burn and Trauma Unit and can flatten, smooth and give flexibility to the scarring. Then if needed I can tattoo skin color back in.

I'd love to chat I own the Cosmedic Corner in Langley

I have a hypertrophic scar on the tip of my nose. It's been there for a couple of years and looks like perpetual pimple. And it hasn't gotten better with time. It's just always THERE. Ughhh.

in my experience, no. i began breaking out seriously in jr high and thats when i developed hypertrophic scars i believe. i've had them for as long as i can remember on both sides of my jawline. (i'm 18 now) they're very bumpy, red, and have not digressed since my teenage years.
