Facial Scarring Treatment
Lip and Nose Scar Revision
Once that small area is injected, we would then pick up with fractional laser resurfacing. The idea behind fractional laser resurfacing in your wife's case is to make many microscopic perforations in the scar tissue using a laser. When these small perforations are made, the scar tissue vaporizes from the heat and softer new collagen forms in the void. Over the course of several treatments this means that the scar tissue is replaced be healthy new tissue.
While scar revision is never perfect, it appears that she is a good candidate and you could get nice improvement from several DEEP fractional laser resurfacing procedures.
