I : I am not sure what you mean by skin rejuvenation since there are numerous modalities that fit this bill... However, there are many options out there for scar revision and minimization that also rejuvenate the face... Talk to your facial plastic surgeon about it and I am sure you wont be disappointed... Hope this helps! -bwc.

Improvement: No scar can be completely removed. Rather your goal should be to improve the appearance of the scar and make it less noticeable.
