Question:

Hi,
I have 2 scars on my left wrist from self-inflicted cuts. What treatment would you suggest if any and would I be able to come in for a consultation and treatment on the same day?
I recently tried fraxel lasering on the scars but I am unsure as to whether this is will work for me.

Answer:

These scars can be difficult to treat. We have tried lasering them with various lasers , including the fraxel, with not a lot of success.
