Improving a burn scar on the body.

Burn scars can be thick and discolored. Our office recommends a combination of topical creams including Melarase PM and Plato's Scar Serum to help improve thickness and discoloration.

How to get rid of burn scars?

Without photo of the scars I can not be certain of their severity.  Most moderate scars can be
improved with a fractional CO2 laser in one or two treatments. The area involved, the extent of the scarring and how much area is involved would all determine the outcome, but a 50+ percent improvement is not unusual. Complete erasure of a scar is probably not achievable.
