Scars and Laser Treatment
Scars like the one your son has respond best to Fraxel or eMatrix laser. Because this scar is deep with an olive skin type it will take several treatments to improve the scar and allow new collagen to grow and remodel. Please be certain to find a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with lasers for the best results.
Fraxel or Icon XD lasers can effectively improve the appearance of surgical scars.
