Scar therapy for a dog bite
Local wound care is best. When the skin heals, I would start scar therapy immediately. Textural and contour problems should be addressed quickly.
TREATING FACIAL SCAR: LASERS (FRAXEL, CO2, ERBIUM), MICRONEEDLING/PRP, SUBCISION
Once the wound is healed, non-invasive laser treatments are the best options for diminishing facial scars. Fraxel Re:Store is particularly effective with different skin types. I suggest consulting an expert for a formal consultation. Best, Dr. Emer.
