Scars from trauma or prior surgery can be much improved with laser treatment. The fractional CO2 laser drills tiny holes evenly with a computer generated handpiece in the skin, which heal with new skin formation, evening the scars. 4-6 repeated treatments at 4 weekly intervals is recommended. There is some redness and swelling for hours or days afterwards. Further surgery is sometimes indicated as an alternative.
