Scar Treatment: Is Laser the Best Option?
- Asked by Better15 in Arlington, VA
- 2 years ago
I had a fibrous popule removed from my nose 6 months ago. It has healed over but there is now a scar on the side of my nose that is red\dark. I am looking into some type of laser to reduce the redness and darkness.
Any help you can provide into what I should be looking for and what I should expect both good and bad would be extremely helpful. Thank you!
Color change following lesion removal
It is common to have some discoloration after the removal of a mole or fibrous papule on the face. Typically, this improves over a year. It is very important to minimize sun exposure in this area as UV exposure can worsen the discoloration. I suggest seeing a board certified dermatologist to evaluate the biopsy site.
