What is the best method to improve my shingles scar on side of my nose? (Photos)

Thank you for posting your question. A combination of fillers and surface treatments can help improving your scar. Fillers can fill in the indented scar while surface treatment can decrease uneven skin pigmentation or reduce surface irregularities. I recommend meeting with an experienced, board certified physician for an in-person evaluation to determine what combination of treatments will work best for you. Best of luck.

A combination approach would be best. I recommend lasers, microneedling/prp and fillers to get improvement. I suggest a formal evaluation with a scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer
