Mostly it is done for boxcars. Yes, I have done it and have seen very good improvement from it. It’s very hard for me to find the scar, it smothes the edges and that blends the scar in cheeks which doesn’t create shadows. In normal light it’s very hard to find the scar. 
 

Remember it won’t do much about the depth but the edges will blend in and hence look more smooth

What kind of laser did you have and how many sessions to see the result, if I may ask? I'm also very interested in improving boxcars this way.

I think I had the fotona laser in fully ablative setting for the boxcar edges. This will not work on very deep boxcars because the depth is just too much still it would give you a boost so basically it will be a pit without the hard edges. I just had one session for it, some boxcars blended well and some did not,maybe my doctor missed. Maybe I need to do another session to take care of it

@getsmart121Speedy recovery and may you have good results. Where did you have the laser done if you don't mind sharing the name of the doctor?

Erbium laser on the edges of the boxcars with Dr.Emil. Smoothed the edges which made scars look more spread and less obvious. Tca 15% with mnd has the same effect but the healing is longer. But you can do it yourself.

I did at with Mark B Taylor. He has some videos on youtube where he demonstrates that. Sometimes he excises the scar if it is not going to make a big impact on the scar surface with just edge resurfacing, doing in the same session as laser heals the skin with no excision line. But its a hit and miss with excision but there is higher chance of no excision line doing with laser. The smaller the excision, the excellent the results are.
