Question: I have two dark scars on my nose from injury caused by fall one month ago. Should I think about laser treatment to reduce them.

Thanks for the query.

I think it's too early to think about any treatment for these scars.
Let few couple of days pass as healing is still going on.

Scar size, color and texture will get altered after healing is complete.Then depending on the how impairment these scars are causing you can decide about the treatment.

Many times one might not need treatment as scar might not be that obvious as they are in initial stages.

If scars remain prominent, then a combined opinion of dermatologist and plastic surgeon can be seeked.

Hope this answers your question.Please ask if there are doubts.

Hi I have an old scar on my forehead that has recently developed A Ridge or bump that follows the whole length of the scar. It seems numb to the touch, but slightly painful when pressure is applied. This scar is 45 years old, and I just recently got over a serious skin infection on my right ear which was very severe should I just see a dermatologist or should I see my primary care physician?

Hi I am 47 years old and have what I am now assuming is a nasal crease from having some pretty severe allergies for all of my adult life, my allergies are mostly under control but the crease is prominent now and white. I work outside and use sunscreen but still am exposed to tanning rays and while my skin darkens the line is more white than ever, not to mention I have Native American blood so it s very pronounced all year. Is there a cream that would diminish the crease? I m even open to plastic surgery procedures if that would be an option, last ditch effort kind of option. Any suggestions?
