Scar repair

Scars which have formed on the skin as a result of acne, accidents, chicken-pox or surgery may be improved through various techniques including chemical peel, laser resurfacing, and excision. Laser resurfacing can be accomplished with the erbium or fractionated carbon dioxide lasers, and requires at least eight days of healing. The desired result is to improve the condition inasmuch as scar tissue cannot be completely removed.
