Traumatic scar on forehead

You can treat your trauma -induced scar with silicone sheathing, Cica care application daily until it goes down.  You can also try non-ablative lasers like Laser Genesis.  Fractional laser can also be usedf for improving the scar appearance.

Scar revision on the forehead for a bad scar

I believe that this scar will be improved with a combination of topical, laser, and surgical protocols that I use in my practice.  The laser will help texture and color, while a scar revision will improve the overall contour and noticeability.  Feel free to contact our office if you have a difficult scar.
