Microdermabrasion or Dermabrasion for TCA Peel Burn Scar?

TCA burn scar
The picture shows redness & is not clear whether there is actual scarring with elevation or depression. A vascular laser such as Pulsed Dye Laser or KTP laser would take care of the redness & may help with the elevated scar.
Once all settles, further management will depend on what is left. For the time being, I would recommend neither Dermabrasion, nor Microdermabrasion.
