Avatar n tn In fact, the older a scar is, the better for scar revision. The unknown question is how effective any treatment to the area will be. The outcome of revision of scars can be quite uncertain and will depend on many factors including its size, location, depth, width, your healing genetics, and the type of treatment used (laser, dermabrasion, surgical excision). Your best bet is to have it assessed by a local plastic surgeon.

Avoid picking, harsh scrubbing, and abrasive treatments unless prescribed by a dermatologist during this period. I hope it helps. Take care and God bless.
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 n tn I have got another question, I heard that after the laser treatment, the retina will be burned and will be a scar, will the scar changed many year after??

Avatar n tn HI Cory, Aside from laser treatment to remove the scar, there are other options such as topical medications and even surgical methods such as excision of the scar with closure, grafts, or expanders.
