Can Lasers be use? If not what are the options? The scar is slightly indented along the incision and shows a little during repose. The upper lip also feels stiff and has some lumpiness along the incision site. Do i massage the area to loosen the tension? The scar is between the dry n wet area of the lips. Please advice.
What Can Be Done to Minimise Scar Appearance of an Upper Lip Reduction?

Fraxel re:store is FDA-approved for Surgical Scars
Consider Fraxel re:store treatments to surgical scars. I use the Fraxel re:store to improve healing of my facelift and other incisions to optimize the result. Fraxel re:store is an erbium:glass laser which helps to remodel the scar. Earlier treatment may repsond easier.
