Is There Any Way to Cover a Surgery Incision Scar? (photo)

Hi. I was born premature so I've had this scar on my stomach ever since I was born. Is there any laser or surgical treatment that can remove this scar or make it less visible? Thank you

Yes, laser can definitely help blend and make your scar less noticeable. I would recommend seeing a board certified dermatologist with advanced training in laser surgery to discuss treatment options.

I would use a Fractional CO2 DEKA laser to improve the scar. It is unlikely to disappear with laser treatment. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles
