Abstract
Fractional resurfacing may be an effective treatment for burn scars because of its unique healing properties and depth of penetration. This case report shows the successful use of fractional resurfacing to treat burn scars. Although more extensive clinical trials are needed, fractional resurfacing could prove to be a therapeutic option for the extensive cutaneous scarring in burn patients.
