Hi doctor,

I have a scar on my face since my childhood. Due to some infection or may be an insect bite, it grew into a pimple and I scratched it. It left a scar on my face and looks ugly.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen your query and concern.

  • Subcision followed by scar revision surgery or punch scar lifting surgery need to consult your nearby dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
  • Otherwise, you can try Opexa gel (Dimeticone and Ascorbyl Testraisopalmitate Gel) or Contractubex gel (Extractum cepae, Heparin and Allantoin) twice daily with variable results.
  • Clean the affected area with water and dry. Gently apply a thin layer of Opexa Gel or Contractubex gel. Let the gel dry for at least 4 to 5 minutes. Use continuously for a minimum duration of eight weeks.
