Cool laser CO2 on the breasts

I would use a combination of Plato's Scar Serum, fractional laser, and Cool Laser CO2 to help reduce the scarring on the breasts.

While laser treatments may help reduce the appearance of thick or textured scars, they will not completely remove the scar. I usually recommend waiting 2-3 months before beginning laser therapy on post procedure scars. It is important to remember that any procedure, laser or another alternative, is not without downtime or risk. Please talk with the surgeon who performed your augmentation to see what their recommendations are. You could also get a second opinion from someone specializing in scar treatment as well. Good luck.

In my practice we start lasers 3-6 weeks after surgery to get the ultimate outcome a year later.  I suggest laser treatment and dermaflage.  Best, Dr. Emer.

In my experience these early scars heal beautifully after a series of treatments with the pulsed dye laser. In some cases a fractional laser can be helpful too. It's best to have the scars evaluated in person by an expert who can come up with a treatment plan specific to your needs. Good luck!
