Scar revision is a procedure that improves the appearance of an unsightly scar. Scar revision can be performed with lasers or with standard surgical excision and repair. Laser scar revision takes multiple treatment sessions for the best outcome. It is less invasive than standard surgery. Surgical scar revision usually takes one session but does require cutting out the original scar and suturing the edges together. The most appropriate method of scar revision type will depend on many factors, including but not limited to size and color of scar, location, and personal preference.
