What can I do to fade redness from a burn?
Doctor Answers 4
Redness Resolution with lasers (pulsed dye, Excel V)
I recommend getting a formal consultation with an expert in lasers. This can be improved with pulsed-dye V-Beam or Excel V lasers and microneedling/prp. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
How can I fade redness?
Hello, thank you for your question. One of the devices that specifically targets vascular (blood/redness) is the V-Beam. It is a laser, it is much more powerful than an IPL device for treating vascular issues. You can check in your area to see if this device is available. It is manufactured by Syneron/Candela and you can go on their website to "find a provider"
Burn marks on scalp
Without pictures it is difficult to let you know how these bothersome areas can be treated. If the burn marks are recent (1-2 weeks) they may fade on their own. If they have been there for longer, sometimes a topical bleaching cream can lighten their appearance. You should definitely let your provider know that these areas are bothering you and ask them to provide you a with treatment options.
