Raised Scar.... anything I can do??

Hi,

I have a very noticeable raised scar which is causing the surrounding skin to almost wrinkle. I'm thinking if i can "sand" this down to be even with the rest of my skin, It will help? Advice?? Thanks!

Silicone sheets applied 24 hours a day for several months may or may not help. Corticosteroid injections may help.

How about excision?

Yes, Silicone sheets can significantly improve ,shrink and soften raised scar tissue

I've had one on my left cheek and it did improve. But don't expect miracles

either.

Cheers
