But the good news in 2014 is that there are many ways in which surgeons can not only treat scars but there are many techniques which will minimize scar development following surgery as well.

This is an easy to follow but in-depth look at the latest techniques in laser scar correction of interest to anyone facing surgery and also for anyone who already has a scar that is causing a problem, or is unsightly, and needs treatment.
