Scars on the legs

Hello I broke my legg and had surgery last year from this I have scars on my leg and will like to know how can I remove them. Should I have cosmetic surgery or laser. Thanks.

You really need to talk to both a great laser specialist and a cosmetic surgeon on this one.  I can’t really comment on this one.  It depends so much on the length and width of the scars, the color of them, the exact location on the leg, etc.  I would get several opinions and then weigh your options and the costs involved.   Dr. Irwin

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
