Dermabrasion or CO2 Laser for alarplasty scar?
Doctor Answers 2
Thank you for your question. It would be helpful to see pictures of your scarring in order for us to provide the most applicable answer. I suggest that you move forward and consult with another board certified facial plastic surgeon. Please keep in mind that the goal of dermabrasion is to create a smoother and more youthful appearance to the skin. Always consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Thank you for your question.
It is hard to make an exact determination on what you need without seeing a photo. To be generic, if you are seeing results with the laser stick to that. It after you complete your treatments and the scar is still present you could do the dermabrasion. Good luck.
