Thanks for your query on healthcare magic.
The cut marks on your upper extremity which you have mentioned your hand is most probably your volar aspect of wrist which are known as suicidal attempt marks.They usually are visualized as hypertrophied scars.The treatment has to have these prerequisites :
1) The scars should be mature - more than about a year old with no blanching , itching or pain in it .
2) No active wound or systemic or regional infection should be present near it

The treatment options depend upon the number of scars and the area involved

If they are in a limited area :
It can be revised with excision of previous scars and infiltrating it with Injections followed by few applications of ointments and compression along with silicon gel sheet (Once the stitches are removed )
This is followed by multiple sitting of fractional CO2 laser for resurfacing and making the scars most inconspicuous.
If the covered area is very extensive resurfacing of the defect can be done by tissue expanding the adjacent skin of the limb and then advancing the adjacent skin over this which leave just a faint line of the advanced flap which can further be resurfaced by fractional laser.
I hope i have answered to your query
God Bless

I am from India. I have old acne scars and freckles. My skin is brown tan. I went for Fraxel Laser Resurfacing 2 weeks ago. After treatment I used Hydroquinone 2% and vitamin a+d for 2 weeks. My skin peeled and new skin is darker, specially near upper cheeks where treatment was more than rest of the face. I returned back to the Dr. who did laser, he asked me to use NIA24 (Niacin cream 5%) and Glytone (Hydroquinone 4%) and asked me to continue for 3 months. I have using this for 3 days. My skin is dry in I don t see any improvement in last 3 days. Should I continue this or there is some other option available for my Post Inflammatory Laser Burn scars.
