Yes and no: Once a scar has been made, there is currently no technology that can create a scarless area but there are several including lasers which can help. Techniques are dependent on the experience and skill of the practitioner as well as the response of the individual, all a which are highly variable. For best results, seek someone with a lot of experience with your particular problem.
