1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends
Chemical peels and/or laser treatments may be an important part of scar revision but without knowing more details, detail recommendations are impossible.
The size, location of the scar as well as it's character (flat, heaped up, etc) all influence the best way to improve the appearance of a scar. Other treatment options include dermabrasion, scar revision surgery, and injections.
