Fractional lasers treat hypertrophic scars with a great degree of success. Palomar Fractional 1540 Laser can be used for used for scars for breast reduction with very minimal discomfort and side effects. Usually 3-6 treatments are required with 6 week intervals. You may choose to use silicone scar patches or Scarguard between treatments, depending on your tolerance.
In my practice we have had great success treating postoperative breast reduction scars with the Palomar 1540. In general a series of 3 to 6 treatments are required.
