I think at one point it will stop stretching. I'm sure there are a variety of factors but I think the primary reason the scar stretches is there isn't enough laxity and the skin continues to compensate (stretch) until there is enough for the proper movement of the head and neck without continual tension. Mine stretched over a period of about 6 months then stopped. The pain and hypersensitivity in some areas, numbness in others continues to this day. My doctor took an excessive portion of skin along the left side of my head and sutured it up with dissolveable stitches.

Poet, do you think the dissovable sutures work well? I see that NHI is recommending either monocryl dissovable sutures or staples as the prefered methods of closure which leaves fine scars.

I have a lot of scars from stretching the skin on the chest and hips. Previously, I did not help any cream. From this cream I was not expecting a miracle. But after using dermalmd scar treatment serum for two weeks, the traces of scars become lighter. They have not disappeared completely, but I use a cream is not so long. I hope that my stretch marks will not be as noticeable as before.
