What is Laser Scar Revision?
For some people, a scar is an unwanted reminder of a wound that once existed or some other condition that created a disruption to the skin. While most scars are not an issue, certain scars are unsightly and unappealing. They can be too big or too wide, bumpy, dark, recessed, or raised. Depending on where the scar is, the age of the scar, and several other factors, a scar revision can be performed to improve its appearance.
