Burn on chest - is it scarred???

Postby TraceyAnne » Thu Dec 13, 2012 10:35 pm

I would really appreciate the advice of those with experience in this area. I had some Fraxel on my chest, just over 3 months ago, but was also stupidly using a cleanser on my body (which I love, as it keeps my skin smooth), containing 3-5% tca. My chest in this area just seemed to be looking a little worse, as the tca was originally sloughing off the dead skin from the Fraxel. I was also applying emu oil to the area every day. In my desperation to heal it, I started using the 'Scar Esthetique' cream regularly. I am now horrified by what it appears I have done to myself, as the surrounding skin has lost its redness & the resulting contrast in colour & texture seems like I have some hypertrohpic scarring. The thing is, it never appeared to blister & certainly not weep during this process, so I don't know how to classify it. It also blanches white when pressed, so I'm also assuming that it's superficial. It's very painful, but improving with time & the cream is helping also. I will just have to increase my application from 1-2 times a day to the recommended maximum of 4, if I am to hopefully, really speed this process up. It has been like this for over a month now.

Please tell me, will I be left with permanent scarring? And how long will it take to 'go'?

Thanks everyone

I'm just working out how to upload a pic from my new system, hmmm, I'm using Windows 8 & the pic is in my pictures. Perhaps the file's too big?
