I would like to get a small scar fixed on the side of my nose that came from too many years of wearing a nose ring. My friend was telling me that this is done by a laser. Is this true?
It depends. If the scar is broad and superficial then it may be improved with laser or dermabrasion, both being methods of skin resurfacing. If the scar is discreet and deep then surgical excision and closure of the scar may be more appropriate. A consultation will determine the best option for each patient.
