Laser damage has created web-like scar formation beneath eyes. Will more resurfacing help?

I am 5 months out from laser burns to my eye area. I have a web-like scar formation when I stretch the skin. Will fractional resurfacing in the future help make it smooth again?

Thank you for sharing your question. Although five months have passed since your laser treatment, you might still see improvements for up to a year. Steroids and microneedling with PRP might be beneficial. Make sure to wear sunblock and sunglasses outdoors to avoid worsening of the scar.
Good luck.

there are many options for treatment including lasers, microneedling/PRP and steroid injections.  I suggest you see an expert for treatment options.  Best, Dr. Emer.
