Scar treatment - how long after the scar healed I can have laser treatment?

How long after the scar healed that I can have scar removal laser treatment? I got the small lighter ones in this year February and the deep one with stitches in March. So my scars are pretty new and I'm not sure if I can have laser treatment. I definitely want to have laser treatment but don't want to waste money on having too early consultation. Also, if anyone can tell me the pulsed dye laser or fraxel laser is better?

I would begin treatment early with Plato's Scar Serum, fractional laser, and injections to improve the appearance of your scars.

I start treatments 3-6 weeks after healing, especially if red and enlarged.  Start skin care now with growth factors and silicone gel.  Best, Dr. Emer.
