Scar therapy for a burn

Use local wound care; followed by Plato's Scar Serum and lasers to help soothe the scar tissue formation. Pulsed dye laser is excellent for this.

Scar/Burn on Face -- Lasers, Microneedling/PRP, Dermaflage/ Bioshield

I suggest posting photos for further evaluation. Your first step is going to be consulting with a board certified dermatologist for appropriate wound care. Silicone based scar gels may help. After 3-6 weeks you can begin treatment with lasers, microneedling, peels, and skin care. Please consult with an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
