Why do I have dents and square scars from Fx laser treatment?

Q:

I had Fx laser around the mouth and chin leaving me with scarring.  I have had two dermabrasions with little results.  What can I do to eliminate these scars?

A:

I am sorry to hear about your unfavorable outcomes.  Yes, lasers can scar, especially if the treatment is deep.  Often you must wait at least 3 to 6 months before any further intervention can be performed.  Hopefully, you will get better after a consult with one of the many members of the ASAPS in your area.  Consider obtaining your treatment records from all your procedures you have had done and take them with you to the consultation.

Best,

Gary Culbertson, MD, FACS
