Not sure whether you can help - tried the skin doc, but sight is closed? I had a breast reduction operation a year ago, and have been using fancy & expensive plasters, bio-oil, calendula cream, and have also gone for 10 sessions of light treatment straight after the op. Seems the use of these products have helped "smooth" the scars, but is there somethig i can use or try for the dark red/ pink colour of the scars? Many thanks, D

Dear Denia
I think you need to consult a Dermatologist because there are treatments involving injections of medications like Interferon that can help for scars. Time does also make all scars fade.
