The scarring may also be accompanied by poor hair growth in the transplanted area. can hair transplant scars be removed ?Actually, there are several ways to remove the scars after the hair transplant procedure.


Fraxel Dual or Fraxel Repair Lasers, Dermabrasion, are the common laser treatment for hair transplant scarring. Some doctors may offer these laser treatment trial to see the effects on the former scarring. However, there is no evidence that laser treatment can eventually remove the scars, most doctors even clearly confirm the failure.
