I have had 2 sessions of pulsed dye laser treatment to reduce a tummy tuck and belly button scar that is 6 months old. My scars were hypertrophic at 6 months and the scar across the belly was still vascular. I am of slim build and my tummy tuck is very tight with not much skin removed.
After the first treatment the vascular nature of the horizontal belly button scar was reduced and the scar darkened to resembled the scar over the hips. The scar appeared to be slightly raised and more prominent to the touch. There was no change to the raised scarring and hyperpigmentation around and in the belly button.
