I have a 7-year-old burn scar on my arm. It's red in color but not raised beyond its original borders. Is there treatment for this and what are approximate costs? I live in the Ann Arbor, MI area.

Treatment for red burn scar
If there is a blood vessel component responsible for the red appearance of the scar, the appearance of the scar may improve with vascular laser/light therapies including the pulsed-dye laser and IPL (Intense pulsed light). I would check with board certified plastic surgeons and dermatologists in your area for a face-to-face evaluation pricing. Good luck.
