Atrophic Scar

How many weeks post injury can I be sure my forehead scar is/will be atrophic? At what point can I consider Mesotherapy?

Healing from surgery or injury takes at least one year. I recommend my scarxtape for several months to minimize scarring.

Thank you for sharing your question. For most patients scar maturation can take upwards of a year. In the meantime seek out scar protective measures such as a high quality sunblock, silicone based scar cream like BioCorneum, and sun avoidance.
