Q&A: Is there anything that can help in repigimenting scars?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

I have hypopigmented scarring on my lips from burns. Is there anything you have that has helped in repgimenting scars? I heard excimer laser may help.

I’m not aware of anything other than tatooing.  This can be useful although some of the dyes used for medical tatooing can fade over time.

I am not sure if the Excimer Laser would be helpful as I have no experience with it but I feel that someone with experience with Medical tattooing may be able to help with the hypopigmentation.
