Question: I have heard a lot about scar revision and its amazing benefits, yet I do not know too much about the actual procedure itself. Is scar revision done with a laser?
Answer: Sometimes scar revision can be performed with a laser and I personally prefer the ProFractional laser by Sciton as we have had some extraordinarily wonderful results treating scars with this fractionated laser. In other cases scar revision involves re-operating on that area and excising the original scar and then closing the new incision in a particular way to make the resulting scar much less conspicuous. Ultimately, your scar needs to be evaluated by a board-certified facial plastic surgeon so that the best treatment option can be recommended to give you the result that you desire.
