Early Scar Treatment with Fraxel Better

A study from Chung-Ung University in South Korea and published in Dermatologic Survey has found early treatment of surgical scars with fractionated lasers produces better cosmetic outcomes.

65 patients who had undergone thyroid surgery had 3 treatments at 1 month intervals to the scar on their neck.

The best cosmetic outcome was found in the group of patients treated 3 weeks post operatively rather than waiting 3 or 6 months after surgery.
