Hello,

Hexilak is a good scar reducing cream but it takes time. You have to use it for at least 6 months.

It can reduce the scar to a great extent however the scar won't disappear completely. It will remain as a thin distinct patch of skin

For now you can continue with the treatment prescribed to you and wait for results.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Rahul Kumar
