In some areas, I’m worried the scar tissue will flatten out too much and become an indentation, so I will dilute the steroid injection to a weaker dose to prevent the scar from flattening too much and causing a dent. For some raised scars, the diluted steroid injection to not strong enough, so I will increase the concentration of the steroid injection for the next session. If the diluted steroid resulted in a flattening of the scar without overdoing it, I will simply repeat the same dilution and amount as I did the first injection.
