Does Acne Scar Excision Leave a Scar?
I have a shallow depressed scar on my left cheek. Will excision of this scar leave a noticeable scar? I went to one doctor and they told me that would have to make a large excision around the scar and that it would leave a red line.
However, another doctor told me that they would just have to cut the scar out and I would only receive a small linear scar that would be unnoticeable to the naked eye after a few months. They said they could follow up with laser treatment as well. I told them that I'm worried about laser treatment on my skin because I'm brown skinned. But they told that their laser is "color-blind." Should I go through with the excision?
