The treatment by laser and RF will improve the scars.
In the case of a facial hypertrophic scar, the possibilities are: surgery for excision, in the event of a thick hypertrophic scar, or a combination of microdermabrassion and laser. The latter are probably the best. I would suggedt consulting either a plastic surgeon or a medical spa with a nurse practitioner trained in the use of laser for aesthetic purposes.

Thanks for your question.
Several types of laser, however, can improve the appearance and diminish the visibility of hypertrophic scars. These include Co2, Nd:YAG, and pulsed-dye lasers among others.
Steroid injections and topical silicone treatments can help as well.
Consult with a plastic surgeon and/or a dermatologist who has experience in these treatment modalities to find out what plan would be best for your scars.
