Abstract

There are various laser therapies available for scar revision that can be tailored according to the patient's characteristics such as age and expectations, as well as the scar's appearance. Laser applications can serve as prophylactic measures of adverse scar formation, definitive therapy, or temporary intervention until further surgical repair is needed.
