How can I remove hypopigmented white scar from double eyelid surgery?
Hi! I did double eyelid surgery 4 years ago and while I love my eyelids open, there is a white scar when it is closed. I had enquiried with dermatologists in Korea on how to reduce to appearance of this scar, and they had recommended a few sessions of fraxel laser. However, I very much prefer to get treatment for this scar here at home, and was wondering what are my options?
I would agree with Dr Chua’s answer. Hypopigmentation is far harder to treat than hyper pigmentation.
Fractional laser is considered one possible treatment. But it does not guarantee results that will be satisfactory to you.
That is a difficult area to treat and most people would ignore it since it is only visible when you close your eyes. This would not show up on photos since we normally keep our eyes open for that.
If you are still really keen on that treatment, fractional lasers like Fraxel will help after quite a few sessions. Re-excision of the scar may also be a good option – you will have to consult a plastic/eye surgeon for that.
