Scar Specialist for Deep Scars in NYC?

Since a spider veine treatment on my nose i have deep scars. I had already done a Dermabrasion and laser treatments, but nothing really helped much. My last treatment is now 12 months ago. I just moved from germany to the states 2 months ago and hoping now to find a good surgeon in nyc, who can help me. I thought about punch graft treatment, would that be possible for my case??? i am really upset and just wanna get rid of it. I hope anyone can help me. best

Scars on the nose and nostrils

Irregular scars on the side of the nose usually occur as a result of large pores, skin irregularities, and possibly post-laser treatment.  The most potent treatments include an Obagi Blue Peel or a Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment.

I would need to see these scars and examine them more closely before i could give you a better idea of what can be done.

Scar reduction with lasers

We do quite a bit of scar reduction with lasers. There are a few different approaches one can take. I don't like punch grafting on the nose as I don't think it does as elegant a job with scars.
