There are different possible types of treatments for Scars of which the following may include:
- Prescription medications, creams or ointments which are prescribed by medical health professionals. Treatments with over the counter creams or ointments should be consulted with medical professionals specially if the medication contains steroids or any harsh chemicals that can harm the skin if not used properly. A visit to your dermatologist for advice is recommended before using over the counter medication.
- Injection of steroids are used to treat scars that are protruding on the surface of the skin such as hypertrophic or keloids.
- Surgery is used for deeper scars that cannot be corrected by medication alone. This will be done by medical professionals and will require a longer treatment period depending on the scale of damage by the scar.
