The "makhwa " facial branding scars in the Arabian Gulf

In some parts of the Arabian Gulf, the makhwa or red hot iron branding is still used  by some traditional Arabian healers.
This young patient was branded several years ago, leaving two large scars in the nasolabial regions.

Fortunately for her,the scars were in the line of the naso labial folds and so they could be excised in an aesthetic pattern.
When the stitches are removed,the resultant faint scar becomes a part of the naso labial fold and will be aesthetically acceptable.

Direct excision of naso labial scars is an acceptable treatment for bad scars in the region.
