hello, i had a session of active fx for pregnancy stretch marks on flanks, lower back and thighs and I was left with severe scarring. 4 days after the session the stretch marks formed scabs, which when they came off left scars. the scars are wider than the stretch marks i wanted to treat. Is there something that I can do for this? Is Palomar laser an opcion? Thank you very much

Thank you for your question. Be certain they are indeed scars. See a Board Certified Dermatologist or Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and have them evaluated. They may only be depigmented or had pigment form giving the appearance of a scar. I then would recommend V-Beam if there is redness present of scar tissue, but this would be a few weeks after the treatment, and only if needed. Laser can be very effective on stretch marks, but has to be done on very low levels, and in small doses. I hope this helps!
