Hypertrophic Scar Still Red 5 Weeks After CO2 Laser Resurfacing. Will the Redness Go Away?
I had CO2 lazer resurfacing done on a hypertrophic (2 inch long) scar on my chin. Its original appearance was light pink with a medium firmness to it (raised about 2mm). The dermatologist used aproximently 4-5 passes at a fairly agressive setting(scar wa lazered completely flat), recovery time was about 21 days. The scar is now(5 weeks later) red with a very firm feeling to it and it seems inflamed (raised about 4mm). Visually there seems to be a white line underneath the red inflamed area
