When I was younger I was very self-conscious about mine. (Vitamin E didn't do a durn thing.) Now that I'm getting up there I'm kind of proud of them. They prove I'm a survivor.

It would depend on the size and location of the scar, I think. Even the degree of skin pigmentation could affect results of treatment. How did you get the scar? How large is it?

I do not know how well the silicone sheets would work in a hairy area. You might have to shave the surrounding hair in order to use it. Maybe bluedevilz could help us here.

Does the hair not disguise the scar?

You might want to consider a consult with a plastic surgeon. The best bet might be revision of the scar and then measures to minimize the scar from the revision.

That about sums it up. Scars (incl acne scars) are for life. They may lighten abit over time but they will never go away for good. Some people are fortunate to have no scars & flawless skin. The rest just have to deal with it or wear makeup.
