What laser fixes pigment scar on upper lip that is neither atrophic or hypertropic?
In my experience, scars like this with associated scar tissue bulk on the red lip are usually best treated with scar revision. This involves removing the old scar and some of the bump around it and carefully closing the wound creating a much finer, flatter scar. This can be performed in the office under local anesthesia.
