How to remove scald scar (or burn scar)

+2

I have had great success treating these kinds of scars using a combination of different lasers.  I start off with microdermabrasion and then use a long-pulsed KTP 532 nm green laser and a long-pulsed Nd:YAG 1064 nm infrared laser to help even out the discolorations (called the Gemini laser--it has both the KTP and Nd:YAG lasers combined in one machine).   I also use either fractional CO2 laser or an Erbium:YAG laser to help with the textural irregularities.  After doing multiple treatments, the results range from 40-70% improvement.
