Scars following injuries are common and an important cause of concern to patients. They can be treated with various modalities including lasers. Recently, fractional lasers have emerged as an effective, safe modality in tackling this challenge. There are limited publications on the efficacy and safety of treatment of post trauma scars with fractional ablative laser. Here we are presenting a case of posttraumatic scar treated with fractional ablative erbiumyag laser which showed significant improvement in colour, texture and overall appearance of the scar.
