The orientation of the scar will determine the final result. Transverse scars on the forehead typically will do the best. Sometimes scar revisions are necessary

Fraxel lasers will help healing/scarring

Best to treat early with fractionated laser (Fraxel Restore or Repair), maybe 3-5 treatments. Old scars can also be helped, but sometimes best results are to treat as early as one week.

Thank you
