Hypopigmentation scars on the knees
Fractional lasers and Plato's Scar Serum combined with micro needling can help improve the scars on the knees. The hypo pigmentation is difficult to control.
Which is the best treatment to remove surgical scar from the knee?
Thank you for your question. Scar revision
procedures with laser therapy can definitely improve the tone and texture of
your scar. This procedure is very easy and there is no downtime, so you can
return to normal activities immediately after. After a consultation, the
physician can determine which laser is best for your skin to improve the scar
without creating hyperpigmentation in the surrounding area. Three to five
treatments are necessary spaced a month apart.
Lasers such as Fraxel might make a small improvement. This area would be difficult to treat since it is an area that there is continued movement. Please consult a plastic surgeon for their expert opinion. Best, Dr. Green
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your photograph, you may benefit from a scar revision surgery. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.
