Fixing burn scars with vascular laser treatment

These flat burn scars may benefit from vascular laser treatment followed by application of Melaquin PM twice daily to reduce the risk of color changes.

Burn scar treatment

Depending on the area of the scars, their pigmentation, texture, location, thickness, and other features, application of pressure garments (e.g. Jobst custom fitted), camouflage cosmetics (e.g. Linda Seidel, Covermark, etc.) clothing, micro pigmentation, injected corticosteroids, and other methods have all been useful. Fortunately, the scars will always be with you as a reminder of your strength in surviving and overcoming a difficult injury.
