Are you concerned about the redness of a scar? This is generally a marker of inflammation during healing and can be addressed using various scar treatment methods.

Normal scars typically lose their redness gradually over the course of around six to eight weeks from their creation. To speed up this process, we can use either injections of corticosteroids, topical corticosteroid treatment, or IPL phototherapy for scar treatment.

For keloid scars and hypertrophic scars, corticosteroids can be injected into the scar tissue to reduce inflammation faster. Another option is fractional laser resurfacing paired with IPL phototherapy.

Speak with Corey S. Maas MDTM, a medical professional double-board-certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, to learn more about red scar treatment options. To make an appointment for a consultation, contact our office today.
