Pediatrician, Surgery 's  Response
Thank you for your query
There are many scar gels available in the market. They show variable response in different patients. For some they may work well, while others may not show any improvement. So don't be disheartened. Anyways these gels take a long time to act and even application for 4-6 months may be required. Then there is a very particular way to apply them and random application defeats the purpose. It is better that you consult a plastic or pediatric surgeon to learn the right way to apply them. Even then if does not work, laser treatment helps in getting rid of the scars or at least hiding them. Scar revision surgeries are also existent but depends on the scar. But remember whatever ointment or surgery, a faint mark always remains. It may not be very obvious but no one recreate what God had created. But it is not bad either because the mark is hardly visible.
Hope that helps
God bless you
