Treatment of Red or Pink Scars on the Body

Laser Treatment of Scars:

 

Scars go through a period of maturation which may take several months to several years.  An initial phase of wound healing occurs after epithelization in which a scar can be red or pink on the surface.  The redness may be a sign of hypervascularity and increased telangiectasia below the surface of the scar.  One of the most novel and effective treatment for red or pink scars is a laser known as the V beam.  The V beam pulsed dye laser specifically targets the vascular component of the scar and is use to diminish redness and pinkness in a wound or scar. 

 

In our office, we use the VBeam Perfecta to treat surgical scars as well as a host of other skin conditions such as:

* Acne Scars

* Facial and Spider Veins

* Leg Veins and Cherry Angioma

* Dark spots on the skin

* Rosacea

* Hypertrophic and Keloid Scars

* Stretch Marks

* Vascular malformations such as port wine stains and hemangiomas

* Warts

If you have a noticeable scar that is still red or pink, multiple treatments of the V beam laser may be beneficial for you.  Please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office to discuss your options for V beam treatment for scar revision.  Contact our patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533.
