Avatar m tn Now I have several rather unsightly scars that range from quite minor to large in size. Can laser treatment, or any other form of scar removal be used to treat this area of the body?
Avatar f tn Hello, Treatment options for such scars include silicon gel sheeting, steroid injections, dermabrasion, collagen injections and laser resurfacing. You can discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn Hi there, A clinical examination is necessary for appropriate diagnosis and management. Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin (or other tissue) after injury. There are no medicated creams to remove scars; you have other options like surgery, where scars can be cut out and stitched up, a process called scar revision. Laser surgery & resurfacing or Steroid injections are other options. That is all I can say at the moment.

1557298 tn?1294592427 Hello, For scars of such accidents and stitch line, since the area involved is big, so the most effective treatment is by plastic surgery. Although laser resurfacing is another option but it also has side effects. In that case it is best to consult a dermatologist and discuss these treatment options with him. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar m tn The various treatment options for such scars are chemical peel, dermabrasion, laser or resurfacing of scars, soft-tissue augmentation, intralesional steroid injection (keloids) and excisional surgery in selected cases but less likely for penile scars. Please discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn For instance, you may be a candidate for hydroquinone use in hyperpigmentations but not laser resurfacing. Some may only need medication cessation or substitution. For surgical intervention an individual must be in good health, not have any active diseases or pre-existing medical conditions and must have realistic expectations of the outcome of your treatment. Laser resurfacing is one among a host of options which you can check on the website quoted below.

Avatar m tn it left lots of scar on my face. i am worried about these scar. i want to remove these chicken pox scar from my face. i went to a dermatologist he told me about laser treatment. please suggest me what treatment is best for chicken pox scars.
Avatar n tn effect, and then follow with a resurfacing laser to feather in the appearance of the scar with the surrounding skin. It is usually best to wait until after puberty as the scars can hyperpigment or keloid in a young child. There are ways to improve scars. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Common methods to make it less visible include dermabrasion, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing. Dermabrasion, and chemical peels are for removing the top layers of ski and replacing it with fresh, new skin which lies below, so they may not be effective to remove scars at a particular site. There are creams available which claim to lighten scars; one such is Vit E cream, which is said to speed up the healing process and also to lessen the appearance of the scar.
Avatar n tn They form a depression or sunken area because of damage to the collagen, fat or other tissues below the skin. In such scars, apart from plastic surgery, laser resurfacing is also helpful. They can be safely and effectively resurfaced through the proper use of a high-energy, pulsed or scanned carbon dioxide (CO2) or Erbium-Yttrium-Aluminum-Garnet (Er:YAG) laser.
Avatar n tn Actually, laser resurfacing is not out of the question, because keloid formation is very rare oj the face, even in dark-skinned people who maye have developed keloids elsewhere. This procedure isn't very effective, though, for ice-pick scars. I would advise that you see a plastic surgeon to look inot both resurfacing as well as scar revision, which consists of cutting out the scar and stitching it back up. That's a brief and effective procedure which works quite well in some cases.
Avatar n tn If they persist then you can get collagen filling and laser resurfacing done.

Avatar m tn I know there are laser resurfacing for pearly penile papules, and I was wondering if laser resurfacing was an option for this. If not is there anything I can do? Microdermabrasion? excsion? anything?! Can I find treatment? Has anyone dealt with this before? Please, help me, I want to feel like me again.
Avatar n tn Hi, Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin (or other tissue) after injury. By ugly if you mean a disfiguring scar, like one that causes the scar to be raised above the surrounding skin, then it could be a hypertrophic scar. There are no medicated creams to remove scars, you have other options like surgery, where scars can be cut out and stitched up, a process called scar revision. Laser surgery & resurfacing or Steroid injections are other options.
Avatar f tn Dermabrasion and microdermabrasion are becoming more and more affordable and you can find cometic clinics all over the place that offer these treatments. Laser resurfacing falls into the same category. I am sure you've heard of these. The best thing to do would be find out where the nearest cosmetic clinic is to you and either call them or email them to book a consultation. They'll decide what option is best for you.
Avatar n tn Natasha: Both dermabrasion and laser resurfacing can, in experienced hands, help some indented scars. The key is "experienced." You should find one, or a few, dermaologists or plastic surgeons who have performed these procedures on a lot of people, and work with them to get a full idea of the pluses and minuses of what you can expect. To get names, you can speak to friends, or check the website of the Americn Academy of Dermatology, www.aad.org. Best. Dr.
Avatar m tn Hello, Unfortunately for this type of scarring or pitting, there is no medical cream as such which can treat it but collagen filling by a good plastic surgeon and laser resurfacing have given promising results.I would therefore recommend these two. All the advertised creams which claim to treat it are an eye wash and although tough for you, but the condition can be treated only from a plastic surgeon or a cosmetologist/dermatologist.
Avatar n tn I would suggest you to use mild steroid cream on the scar and if they still persist then consult a dermatologist and discuss the possibility of photoderm.microdermabrasion or laser resurfacing with him. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.

Avatar m tn Hello, Since it is a very old scar, so laser resurfacing can be done. There is no topical treatment for this and I would suggest collagen or hyaluronic filling or laser resurfacing if the scars are sunken or old. Please discuss these treatment options with your cosmetologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar f tn I have seen a dermatologist a year ago with insect bites that has not completely healed but has turned into a hyperpigmented scar. It is still itchy and has now become numerous on my extremities, given my exposure to a place with mosquitoes and gnats..I have tried very high potency topical corticosteroid such as halobetasol, betamethasone and clobetasol with some help but after 2 weeks of treatment, comes back itching and non healing.

Avatar m tn Is my understanding correct that with scar this deep the only option is surgery (subcision or excision), followed by filler and/or laser resurfacing if needed? http://ei.realself.com/full/eca0b040dbdd3b76132507b4dbb1477a/5/c/e/userimage-364300.jpg http://ei.realself.com/full/99a1f688208a30fcea62631674c0150f/6/1/8/userimage-364301.
