Thanks for ur solution. But when I met skin specialists, they'll tell we cant do nothing & give some ointments to reduce the colur of scar. I'm bit confused. pls suggest me.

Hi Harish,

Welcome to HCM.

Plastic surgery with skin grafting can correct the scar on your face. For this, going to a skin specialist (dermatologist) is not useful. You must consult a plastic surgeon, who is a superspecialist and if he says nothing can be done then there may be some technical reasons which prevent correction of the defect by plastic surgery.

Wishing you all the best.

Hi just last night around 9:00 I was waxing my cheeks and I guess the wax was to hot and it burned my skin on two sides of my upper face closer enough to my eye area . I currently have pure aloe Vera gel on the areas since last night and I keep re-applying it. When I do put it on it burns a lot but then passes, but I was wondering if that will prevent scaring ? And if not what cream will ? :(
