Retin-a for scars
Thanks for your question! Both retin-a and lasers can be helpful for scar improvement, sometimes we do a combination at our practice. You might want to talk to your dermatologist about pre- and post- laser treatment with retin-a, which helps to peel the skin in a microscopic manner, and you can continue to use it after laser treatment if you think more improvement is needed. There are many types of lasers, so see a dermatologist that is familiar with lasers and uses a variety of types. They will be able to recommend the most useful regimen. Best of luck!
