Leg scarring

I was referring to scarring caused by bug bites, razor burn, and hair plucking. Tiny scars all over legs. Curious as to what procedures would help.

Thanks. Probably best to be seen in person due to the various origins of these lesions. Some may benefit from steroids, others from laser, and others possibly with tattoo. I'm happy to see you if you are in Southern California!

Hello and thank you for your excellent question. It is best to answer your question during a face-to-face evaluation, when you can discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure, and you can have a physical examination to evaluate for that procedure. I recommend that you find a board-certified, or board-eligible plastic surgeon with whom you are comfortable. Be sure to have all of your questions answered during a face-to-face meeting with your surgeon, and review before and after pictures of similar patients whom have had this procedure. If you have any questions, call our office for assistance. Good luck!
