2 months after your procedure, your scar will look its worst as it goes through the contraction phase of wound healing. After that time, the scar will smoothen and the redness will fade. For scars that remain puffy or “hypertrophic” 4-8 months after the procedure, small procedures can be performed to help with the appearance. If this is something you think you might require, please do not hesitate to call us for an appointment.
