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?

What can help a persistent laser burn 5 months post treatment?

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.
