Upper Lip Lift Scar

Postby Zarah » Tue Jun 26, 2012 11:29 pm

I've been treating my ULL scar with V-Beam laser & applying wound-be-gone right after. Then I switch it up to Kelocote(sp?). So far i've done two laser treatments since surgery. Next month will be my third.

The laser helps with the redness. I don't know how many I have to do so far.

My concern isn't so much about the redness. It's the scratch like scar. It's not raised. I'm just hoping it doesn't stay deep like that. I know it's going to turn into a white line. When I smile, it marks.

My incision in the middle isn't too close to my nose, so it's kinda hard to hide it.

I'm gonna treat it with laser for as long as I could in a year & see how it goes. I'm wondering if dermabrasia would help? Or anything else?

I also have tretinoin...wondering if that would work also?

Thanks.
Zarah

So I picked up some rose hip oil to apply at night before going to bed. Stuff is purely amazing. It's making the redness fade faster and plumps up my incision line. I've been massaging like crazy. Twice a day.

From what I read online, rose hip oil is the best oil to apply RIGHT AFTER THE STITCHES ARE REMOVED. Massage massage massage a lot with it, so you can have a nice outcome. To any fresh new scar, whether it's surgical stitches, acne scars, etc...

I'll keep an update on my incision here...

Hi Kelly.

It's still kind of the same, but getting better. I'm at two months and my PS told me it'll take a year to heal fully. So i'd have to see.

I'm going to look into some sort of fraxel laser treatment or dermabrasia. But I think I have to wait at least 6-12 months? I'm not sure. I'm going to ask the dermatologist.

The rosehip has been great with redness and plumping.
