There are different types of scars. Spread, atrophic (thin and depressed), hypertrophic (raised, maybe red), keloidal (raised and spread), step-off (one edge higher than the other), groove (Valley-shaped crease), etc. Some scars have features of different types and laser treatment for one scar may be different than another. Some scars need surgery first followed by laser. Some scars need a series of both V-beam laser treatments for redness and the Fraxel laser or Portrait Plasma resurfacing devices for scar reduction. 

These laser revisions can not make scars go away but can make them fade, at times, significantly. The cost will vary depending on the laser, time involved, practice and geographical location of the practice.

The cost for laser depends on the depth of treatment and the surface area.  This may range from a few hundred dollars and up.

Thank you for your question. This will depend on many factors, that can only be determined after an evaluation. A rough estimated range may be $500-2000.  Be certain to be under the supervision of a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon with expertise in laser surgery and ethnic skin for the most effective and safe treatments. I hope this helps.

Prices vary by region; Boston, NYC and other larger cities tend to be more expensive markets.  Most practices will have a "spot" treatment price per ablative fractional or nonablative fractional laser treatment.
