In brief: Laser

Laswr resurfacing either by carbon dioxide or erbium can improve s ars.
Fractionated laser, where a percentage of skin is treated heals quickly in as little as 3-4 days with the erbium. Since a portion of the skin is treated side effects are limited to redness for 1-2 weeks and can be repeated if desired for additional improvement. In addition long term filler such as artefill can lift large scar.
