Treating Scar with Fraxel Laser
Thank you for your question. I think the improvement in this particular area will be minimal. The skin is so thick the improvement is just not as profound as it is on the face. I hope this helps!
Treatment for Raised Scar
The Fraxel laser may help in flattening or blending the scar but by far the best treatment to flatten a raised scar is intralesional 5- fluorouracil, which needs to be injected twice a week for 6-10 treatments. It’s important that you see a board certified dermatologist who is highly specialized at performing these injections.
