Is it possible to forward a photograph of the red marks.
Thank you for the pictures. In my opinion, the red marks which are elevated can be treated with injections of weak cortisone ( 2.5 mg./cc of Kennalog). The flat red ones can be treated with a pulsed dye laser. I do not beoieve the among of scar involvement merits procedures such as a Fraxel of CO2 Pulsed laser.
I would be happy to entertain further comment and answer further questions.
While there are some dermatologists who specialize in scar repair. most dermatologists can do those injections. A chemical peel will do the same thing essentially as a laser or Frxel treatment, just with a chemical and not light. This is a possibility too, but you should be sure to see someone with a high level of competence since this can be difficult. Not done properly, it can leave scarring.
