Does the laser treatment completely get rid of scars?

Scar treatment: Depending on the problem with the scar there are treatments to improve them but nothing will completely remove them. I treat pigmented scars with bbl to lighten them, thick scars with fractional laser to soften them, or bad or wide scars with surgery to cut out the scar and re-sew it a more cosmetically pleasing way. The laser approach requires a series of treatments to be effective--often 5-6.

Freckles: Freckles don't need to be treated. However they can be treated with a ndyag q switched laser. I have successfully removed 1000's of freckles from redheads with irish ancestry that don't want them. It is important to be sure they are truly freckles and not dysplastic nevi. Some people think that their dysplastic nevi ( abnormal moles) are freckles because they are flat . See your dermatologist.
