What scars cannot be treated ?
Active Keloid Scars. They are raised and grow outside the boundary of the original scar tissue forming smooth, hard growths called keloids. Not all raised scars are keloid, hypertrophic scars are also raised but stay within the boundary of the original wound. Active keloids are still growing, inactive keloids have not grown for more than a year and the centre of the scar has become a more normal skin color. Dry tattooing could be performed with caution and supervision throughout the healing period.
I’m taking Isotretinoin, (Accutane). Can I have this treatment done in my problem areas?
Unfortunately no. You can have your first treatment 4 months after you finished taking Isotretionin (Accutane/Roaccutane).
