Hello doctor,

I have undergone skin grafting in my leg due to acid burn before three years. Now it is fine. But my skin discolors, and stitch marks are not changing significantly. So please suggest some treatment to be done to regain my skin color quickly.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. Though It is not possible to reverse changes back to normal completely, you can use following topicals and then follow back.

1.Contractubex cream

2. VC 15 serum.

Mix both in 2:1 ratio and apply twice a day for six weeks.

Thank you doctor,

Is Contractubex cream is also useful even after 3.5 years? I was using this creams up to 2.3 months after surgery.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Of course, it is not as effective as when the scar is new and going through the healing or remodeling phase, but It works to a certain extent in older hypertrophic scars as well. Other options include fractional Co2 laser, which can help in improving the appearance of the scar.
