    At times several complications can be encountered after laser resurfacing, even with careful preoperative screening and patient preparation as well as meticulous intraoperative technique. Hypertrophic scar is rare but the most severe complication, which exerts a bad influence on patient"s postoperative satisfaction and doctor-patient relationship. We report five patients who had hypertrophic scar after laser resurfacing. They were treated with several modalities including intralesional steroid injection, high potency topical steroid, tranilast oral medication, and Er:YAG laser ablation using lower energy.
