I have atrophic scars on the glans penis, like acne boxcar scars, shallow/flat. Can I get them laser resurfaced like treatment for papules? Options?

I have atrophic scars on the glans penis, like acne boxcar scars, shallow/flat. Can I get them laser resurfaced like treatment for papules? Options?

Scars of the glans: Hello, from your question I did not get the sense that you had pain from the scars. I recommend against any further ablative treatments to the skin of the penis. This is a very sensitive part of your body and any ablative therapies such as laser resurfacing or more caustic treatments could reduce sensibility to this organ. Good luck.
