Depending upon the color, texture, and age of the scar, several different lasers can be used to improve scars. There is no treatment available at the present time that can remove the scars completely, but they can be improved. If the scars are red and/or raised we treat them with Pulsed Dye Laser, if they are old and white, we treat them with Fractional lasers and if they are bulky, they can be treated with ablative resurfacing lasers, i.e. CO2 or Erbium: YAG laser.
