Scar on Finger and Lasers?

Can a laser be used to remove a scar on the finger? How deep can a laser penetrate a scar below on the finger below the surface. I read that some lasers can stimulate collagen production below the surface. Thank you.

Lasers can work to improve scars anywhere on the body.  The fingers can also be treated to improve scarring.  Some finger scars can involve scar contracture, but that will not improve with lasers.
