Scar Removal Lasers
There are very good noninvasive, no downtime lasers to help with this problem. We typically would use the V-Beam, the Cutera or Icon lasers to help to reduce redness and flatten uneven scars.
Combination Treatment for Scars
Scars can be treated with a combination of lasers, fillers, subcision, microneedling + PRP. Please see an expert physician to see which treatment is right for you.
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may benefit from a scar revision. The most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are
comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified
board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.
