Seeing is believing: A doctor who has seen you has more information than we can get from you online. Scars cannot be completely removed.

See a Specialist: You should see either a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon who specializes in acne scarring, cosmetic surgery and lasers.

Keloids: Depending on the size of the keloid you I tend to excise them and/or inject with steroid. I personally have ablated keloids with an Erbium and CO2 laser but without much long term success.

Hello Doctor, I have large pores on my face. dermatologist told me to do laser treatment to remove it .is laser treatment really works and is it safe?
Safe and works well: It doesn't get rid of it, just reduces the size of the pores. Find the right laser as not all lasers are alike. Stay away from IPL and check out YAG lasers. You will need a few treatments. It's totally worth it. Get a free consult with different doctors before committing to one. Make sure someone very experienced is doing it too, not just a salon person, but someone who's medically trained by a dr. ...Read more

Hello, I am looking for a full bikini diode laser hair removal and i need to know if the diode laser will affect my genitals or cause any infertility.
My Derm. Referred me for a treatment to another Dermatologist. Called to make sure with regular Dr. about treatment & he said call the refer Dr. why
He/she does not know: Maybe your "regular doc" is not aware or know about the proposed/referred treatment and so cannot answer you. Your Derm doc should have explained to you why you are being referred. Or reason could be that the referral likely will require the "regular doc"--I assume your primary care doc--to do/authorize the referral (time&resource needed) and does not want to do this...not paid. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
