Dear DOC, what do you think of LASER FRAXEL SR1500 resurfacing of scalp scarring?
Any resurfacing of the scalp will damage the pigment cells and cause the color of the skin to lighten. It may also change the character of the skin surface and this may be more true when used for the treatment of a scar, which will require a deeper burn to get below the scar. I am not excited about resurfacing the scalp skin. I am not an expert on this though, so do ask your doctor for what his/her goals are — and specifically if the potential problems I discussed here are reasonable concerns.
