Laser scar reduction

Sorry to hear about your fall. Lasers are a wonderful option to help reduce the appearance of your scar and often my go-to choice in treating scars of all types. I recommend you see a dermatologist with expertise and advanced training in lasers as having skin of color requires great experience.
