Forehead scars and scar revision

Many forehead scars improve with a combination of surgical scar revision, fractional lasers, ematrix RF, and subcision.

Scar Removal

Thank you for your question in regards to scar removal. Completely removing a scar is very difficult to do, but there are many treatments that can help improve the appearance of scarring. Fractional lasers, microneedling, and some fillers are all options. To be sure what is best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.
