Scar revision for forehead scars includes laser and subcision and chemical peels
Forehead scars can be improved with a combination of subcision and fractional skin resurfacing laser. These two treatments, followed by light MelaPeels can improve your scar.
Scar Removal Options
Hello. The scar you have appears to be a candidate for ablative laser resurfacing. Ablative laser resurfacing disrupts the surface of the skin (removes part or all of it) and when the skin heals, the scar can improve. With hat said, there are many different types of lasers available and the number and type of laser can affect your results. We would use Erbium laser resurfacing for you.
