Scar removal or laser hair removal... Which should I do first?

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone. This question is a bit embarrassing, but here goes...

I have some pretty extensive acne scarring on my upper back -- it covers a fairly large area, and some of the scars are raised. I'm thinking about doing subcision or maybe punch.

I also have some hair there that I need to have removed. After some consideration, I've decided on laser treatment for that.

My question is this: which should I do first? Does it matter?

Thanks in advance :)

I have read ANY laser procedure can cause scarring so for that matter I recommend you get the hair removal and then the scar removal so there is no possibility of lasting scars from the hair removal.
