Hypertrophic Scar Revision

Dear Patient

To get rid of the scar redness, you may have to get a prescription of a steroid tape from your doctor.

Examples include Cordran tape which is impregnated with the corticosteroid flurandrenolide. It will also help with flattening the scar completely.

Some hair transplant surgeons can perform camouflage procedures using follicular unit transplantation to conceal the scars.
