Abstract

Many articles have been published on improving the appearance of scars; however, there are no definitive management protocols. Our objective was to review the literature on laser therapy for various types of scars. There are multiple laser modalities that have been studied with certain features that may be indicated for specific scar types. Suggestions are given for further studies.
