Abstract

Various methods are available for refining scars of the external nose and optimal scar revision frequently requires the utilization of multiple techniques. Differing anatomy of nasal subunits and their underlying structural framework limit surgical options in nasal scar revision compared with other areas of the face. An understanding of a variety of laser technologies and their specific applications can vastly aid in fine, controlled scar revision. Achieving optimal scar reduction regularly requires multiple stages of intervention, close follow-up, and repeat procedures.
