Skin coloration
Hello doctor.. i had met with an accident 6 months ago and underwent a reconstructive surgery. I have used creams like contratubex, cicatrix, hexilac.. still using the last one. though the scar has reduced, skin coloration is not at all improving. would gels/creams suffice to restore skin coloration? i am attaching the pic of the scars

Thanks for the query. Scars are amenable to various treatment options and it has to be customized based on your scar type. The treatment depends on the duration of scar and ability to follow-up. The advance treatment option includes Fractional CO2 lasers in multiple sessions and is currently the procedure of choice. Other options include dermaroller with or without mesotherapy, subcision and some other procedure. Certain patient benefit when oral medications are given concomitantly. Topical creams may be of little use and will supplement laser treatment.
Next Steps
Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation.
