Non Surgical Options For Treating Old Scars at Legs?
Doctor Answers (2)
Melaquin AM and Melaquin PM for scars
Old scars on the legs are usually discolored and dark. In my practice, I place patients on a three month course of Melaquin AM and Melaquin PM creams to even out the scar color.
Laser scar treatments
Many scars can be treated with different lasers to either remove the redness, make them less noticable, flatten them out and improve the scar texture. In our office, we use a combination of lasers like a pulsed-dye laser and fractionated CO2 laser to treat some of these issues. These lasers are not for every scar, so I would start with a consultation from a trained laser surgeon.
