I treat many breast scars, including breast augmentation scars, and have found that a combination of Melarase creams plus pulsed dye laser can improve most scars. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles

Best Treatment for Underarm Scars

Hi Mindy.  Based on your description, it's not easy to say which method of scar revision we would use, but we're happy to talk about several to give you a better idea.

For colored scars, we use the Cynosure V-star (redness) and the Palomar Q-Yag V (brown scars).  For raised scars we typically use Kenalog to flatten then and for slightly irregular and uneven texture or indented scars we like the Sciton Profractional laser.
