Vertical Forehead Scars

Treatment of Vertical Scars are extremely difficult.  Scar revisions are largely unsuccessful and can look worse than the original scar.  Fraxel Laser (1550) wavelength has been very effective at treating scars on the face including vertical ones.  Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with scars for the best results.

Forehead scars and scar revision

Forehead scars are difficult to treat, particularly if they are vertical.  Scar excision is among many treatment options, including laser, IIT, and topical application of Plato's Scar Serum.
