Cold laser scar tissue

Common Questions and Answers about Cold laser scar tissue


Avatar n tn Hi doctor, 5 years ago, I had facelift, necklift, eyebrow lift, midface lift, and lower lids, and chin implant done. I have scar tissue all over my face. Even at the side of my nose where he says he didn't touch. AS for the chin, he put a jaw which I asked him to remove it just after a month after the operation. I had ultrasound for almost a year and half,with minimum results.
Avatar n tn I recently saw a retina specialist who said that the retina change was from scar tissue due to the cold laser treatment. He said it was often the case that the vision improved after the initial treatment but deteriorated after 4 to 5 years from scaring. He said my vision lost was permanent. Because of the vision lost he said they no longer performed the cold laser treatment to stop fluid leakage. Is there something that can be done to restore my lost vision?

Avatar f tn When I got pregnant it really got big and filled with milk my doctor said it was breaast tissue that traveled into my armpit and that as long as it didn't hurt it really wasn't anything to worry about. It just looks like extra baggy skin and as a result I can't wear sleeveless tops. I've never known anyone else who has this to ask what they think or feel. My husband thinks if it bothers me so much I shyould have it removed. I am scared and want to know what the health risks are.
Avatar n tn said was common in the midwest and that it only affects sight later in life as the consistansy of the fluid in the eye changes and starts pulling on the scar tissue moving it around. They did a cold laser process that day and said that would stop the movement of the scar tissue and gradually the floater would go away. Well 6 weeks later the floater has only gotten worse. On the follow up visit with the Dr.
Avatar n tn After a week past by the honey clusters stopped and began to heal, but i still have a scar are a mole like scar on the corner of my mouth and just above my lip. I was referred to the Dermatologist Office and he prescribed me with Clindamycin Phoshate (used for acne.) Its been a week of taking this and the scares still remains. The scares are fleshy and soft to the touch and painless. My question is what can be done to remove the scars.

Avatar f tn After all surgeries there is scar tissue and can cause pain. I would try to find a P.T. with a cold laser machine it may help, it has for me. The P.T. could help you sterngthen your back without hurting you. We may never be pain free but like you said your better than before surgery. Thats a good thing.
Avatar m tn Hello, This scar could be because of the granulation tissue formed after removal of mole. Sometimes it may become dark as original mole or even darker than that. What happens is that melanocytes left behind in the wound regrow in an abnormal pattern. This is accompanied by scarring, inflammation, and blood vessel changes. For its removal Several methods are available nowadays for the removal of moles, like cryosurgery, excisional biopsy, electro cautery, cold freezing to name a few.
Avatar n tn Dear Blurryeye, I would recommend that you speak with the eyeMD that you saw and ask whether a diagnosis was made. This would help in understanding the course of your condition. Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.
Avatar f tn So for 3 yrs I was using Enemas 3 times a week just to have a bowel movement because there was a small bowel obstruction from scar tissue, I also started to pee myself and at times had no sensation to pee at all or the pain was so intense I could not pee. It was a nightmare. For the last 7 yrs I have been on various meds but the one that I felt worked for me with the least amount of side effects was and is Marvelon. Its a BCP that I take everyday with no breaks.
Avatar n tn is the bottom most anatomy in this question,,,I dont think techincally its prolapse, scar tissue can cause the strangest things to happen, its very very common for endo uterus's to be adheared to the urinary bladder, infact mine was had to be " peeled off" my ovary was addheared to my bowel, with masses of scar tissue......
Avatar m tn I went back for a follow up in October and he found that some scarring had occurred but had not closed the bladder neck. Proactively, he decided to remove the scar tissue, so in November he did a cold knife TURBNC. He found that the scar tissue was just a very thin vail and was easlily removed with no bleeding post op. I am now doing daily self caths with a 20Fr catheter until I return for follow up in February.
Avatar dr m tn There is also surgery to reduce the turbinates, which are these wing-like structures on the side of the nose that swell when you have a cold or allergy and there’s one other condition called nasal valve collapse that is frequently undiagnosed. This is a condition where the sidewall nostrils of your nose tend to collapse due to just natural weakening or due to previous surgery. Now these are the people that benefit very well from Breathe-Rite strips, or those nasal dilator strips.
Avatar n tn Hello: Fellow Retina Detachments I am in my 2nd month after surgery for a detached retina. I had 2 major surgeries, the first one was after a failed in-office Laser procedure. In the first surgery I got a Scleral Buckle & Vitrectomy with a gas bubble. Because there was a lot of scar tissue I required a second surgery and received the Silicon Oil in place of the gas bubble. The issue for me is the amount of vision that can be expected after this procedure.
Avatar f tn Going this route will also help if there is some sort of blockage from scar tissue from your previous surgery preventing pregnancy. Many women after having proper surgery with a specialist have gotten pregnant months after. I would document the bleeding from your nose during your cycle, although rare it could be endo in a very rare part of your body. Not saying it is at all but sometimes cyclic nose bleeding is common in the endo community but almost 99.99999% of the time is not endo related.
Avatar n tn is there a chance I could still have some recovery even tho it is 16 months ago from surgery? I had a new MRI that shows scar tissue compressing the L5 nerve root, and also scar tissue in the area of the L5 where the disc was you think I would improve if I had the scar tissue removed with additional surgery? My Neurosurgeon made no suggestions other than that I will have to take muscle relaxants, pain meds, and arthitis med for the remainder of my life...I am 43 F...
Avatar f tn Well, mine was also accompanied with some scar tissue bands building up over the past couple years. Using a gas bubble was on option, but my doctor didn't think this would secure the retina back to my eye. He decided to use a scleral buckle, which I agreed with. The surgery itself was quick. I've never had surgery before and was terrified. I was out and over before I knew it. The most difficult part was waiting / intake for surgery, after that it was all over quickly.
Avatar m tn I stated to notice it one day and I wasn't quite sure if I always had it and just never noticed it so I actually pinched my self a number of times right next to the scar and I made another scar which is worse than the original.
Avatar f tn Not only am I super hot and drenched in sweat, I'm freezing my butt off, teeth are chattering, COLD! But they're both at the exact same time. Not only like a 106 degree fever but icy hot! it burns my skin! And it lasts anywhere from 6-18 hours a day. I can't work with this. I can't live with this! Then there's the headaches. full on pressure headaches...they are worse than me, after a natural labor, I know. I can't do anything with them.

Avatar n tn Unfortunately, my understanding after much on line research is that Jelqing causes permanent Cirrhosis --scar tissue, connective tissue formation that replaces the healthy tissues.
Avatar f tn I was in a car accident back in 1987 ... since then I have ear pain (which now we think was related to scar tissue in the neck), upper back pain (which has subsided somewhat with the use of laser therapy from a chiropracter) ... but lately and most severely, I have pain in my lower back, abdomen, and left side. I had a back x-ray, came back normal, I have had internal and external ultra-sounds on my abdomen ... again, normal ...

Avatar n tn These injections cause the keloid to become atrophic, or thinner, and are repeated every three to four weeks until the keloid has been resolved to the individual's satisfaction. Other therapies include laser treatment or radiation therapy, and topical treatments are undergoing study. Let us know if you need any other information. Regards.
Avatar n tn I am going through physical therapy doing the usual tens machine, accupunture, cold laser and just finished 4 rounds of radio therapy (they use the machine that breaks up kidney stones to break up the scar tissue to ad in healing) and 3 rounds of IMS. I found the IMS and the radio therapies to help for the contracted muscle issues but I am not having success with regards to the tennis/golfer's elbow.
Avatar n tn Mosy likely guys it's scar tissue from having sex or trauma from from say a cathader.Which may have caused a slight rip or tear in the urethra,and when it heals it leaves a scar.That can cause your stream to split and make it difficult/painful to urinate.Take everything else into play with that,like what we drink and eat.How much or how little we drink.Not active enough.Medicines we take and the fact when somethings on your mind like that.
