Scar Removal for Lip Scar?

Lip scars caused by a burn
Scar revision on the lips is best achieved using scar excision techniques followed by layered skin closure. This will help improve the scars.

Smoking scar may be a deep wrinkle
One, you could fill any depression or crease in the lip with a filler such as Juvederm or Restylane.
Second, you could have a skin peel or resurfacing procedure performed to rid yourself of the unsightly line or scar. That would involve a relatively deep chemical or laser peel, as medium or lighter peels won't improve lines, wrinkles, or scars very much.
Thirdly, and possibly the best option for a scar, would be an Erbium Profracional laser peel. This is a procedure where a laser is used to create very small tunnels in the skin. It injures 11% to 22% of the skin so healing occurs very quickly. This can be performed in a medical spa or office setting and does not require any sedation or general anesthesia. The results with Profractional laser treatments can be outstanding, but frequently, several treatments are required.
