I have a scar which has been red for a long time. I have tried silicone gel creams, fraxel restore and smartxide dot laser treatments which have not got rid of the redness of the scar tissue. My next option is to try V-beam perfecta laser what's the downtime for asian skin.
What's the Downtime for Vbeam Laser for Scar Redness Treatment?

Downtime for V-Beam
Good News , There is no down time,but there will be some discoloration that last 4-7 days, that can be easily covered with makeup.
Minimal down time with VBeam
The common aftermath are redness (invariable) and swelling (in my practice affecting about 20% of patients). Both resolve within 24-48 hours for most people.
For certain conditions, like treating the redness in scar, the laser would be used at a setting which will intentionally bruise. For most, the bruising fades within about a week.
...depends on the area.
Hope that helps, regardsDr Davin Lim Consultant Laser and Cosmetic Dermatologist Brisbane, Australia
