Active FX: There are many options for facial scar. Co2 laser resurfacing like active fx, fraxel, skin graft, stem cell graft, or dermabrasion.
Dr. Stephen Weber

Many options: Facial scarring can be treated with steroid injections to reduce the bulk of the scar tissue, lasers to reduce redness or help blend the scar, dermabrasion to smooth the scar, or revision to replace the scar with a finer surgical scar. Lastly you can have tattooing performed to camouflage the scar. I hope this information is helpful. Stephen weber, M.D. Lone tree facial plastic surgeon.
