Scars on nose after 3-4 years and self healing

Scars stop healing after 2 years and 90% after 6 months most of the time. It depends on how your scars look but you can get some improvement. I like a multilayered approach.

These scars will not heal by themselves and are best treated with Laser Resurfacing of eMatrix.

These scars are best treated with a combination of traditional and fractional resufacing.  This type of scar requires special skill to do the right thing.  Go to a Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon with lots of cosmetic laser resufacing experience.  Multiple treatments with eMatrix would also help.
