I have a depressed scar on my face due to unexpected result from a laser treatment of mole. It looks like the pic below but this is not me. I want to know what is the best possible treatment for such scar? Any suggestion or recommendations of really-experienced expert in this area are highly appreciated.
Depressed Scar on Face-- Caused by Laser Treatment of Mole
Doctor Answers (2)
Mole removal scars can be improved with new treatments including laser
Percutaneous scar release followed by pulsed dye laser may improve the scar. At a later point, I would recommend fractional laser resurfacing.
While it would be best to properly evaluate the scar you describe, a couple options exist. The location of the scar is important to know as that can dictate what can be done and what skin laxity exists. Please consult with a board certified specialist in the face who can best assist you.
