4 months after CO2 ablative laser

And my scar is still pinkish.It wasn't for about month,but now I notice again pink color. I don't expose myself on sun.why is it again pinkish? Is Fraxel (nonvolatile) laser good for dog bite scar? For now,I'm not that satisfied from Co2 ablative laser results,I plan on other treatments! thank you

Please post photos for further evaluation. There are many options for scars including scar revision with surgery and treatment with lasers, microneedling and PRP afterward. Please see a board certified dermatologist for evaluation and treatment. Best, Dr. Emer

Treatment for redness associated with scars

Thank you for your question noscars. Fractional CO2 lasers work well for deep wrinkles and acne scars. Often times there is a redness associated with such scars. Redness is best treated with other lasers including Nd:YAG, KTP, pulsed dye, and IPL. These can often be performed on the same day as a fractional CO2 laser treatment. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
