Light lectrosurgery

Light lectrosurgery could flatten these scars but would leave temporary coor change. Cortisone shots could leave depressions. Micorneedling is other option which is safe in your skin coor and the only drawback is temporary redness.

Scars from p

These scars would take many months to help reduce them with a combination of intralesional cortisone injections and eMatrix laser.  It is best to see an expert in scar treatments because of the nature of your scars and skin type.  Please stay away from Fraxel for your skin type.  Best, Dr. Green

Growths on the nose

These growths may represent sebaceous hyperplasia and can be controlled with fractional resurfacing techniques using laser or RF.
