Raised surgical scars, traumatic scars or kelpids and hyeprtrophic scars are treated different using laser technology, pressure dressings, steroid injections, topical treatments and by specialists who have expertise in this area.
Sublative technology like eMatrix may help with raised scars but is more useful for atrophic ance scars, some ice pick scars based on Dr. Raffy's criteria, rolling scars and boxed scars, among others.
.... yes it can ... but...
I prefer to use Ematrix for early scarring of acne- box car, atrophic and mixed scars do well in all skin colours.
