Question about donor scar


#1

I was wondering if laser surgery could be used to remove the scar. From what I’ve read, the answer is no. Has anybody heard otherwise?

Laser vs Cold Steel ?
In general laser work by burning/heating the skin/tissue.
A scalpel blade (aka cold steel) is gentler (phew! if you can imagine that).
Laser provides less bleeding (it burns as it cuts, or cuts by burning) and some wounds in some areas may appear to heal faster. Some indeed do.
But the ending scar, at the very end, depends on many physiologic and environmental charateristic (including your genes) that you may see excellent/good/terrible results done with a laser or a blade.

What really know as a fact is that lasers suck for HT (lol). We do.

Other options is to fill the scar with hair, which sometimes (only) is pleasing to a moderate degree.

A coin toss. Good luck.

I think a lot depends on how wide is your scar. Can you email me hairsite@aol.com or upload some pics so that we have a better idea?

Most people get FUE for the strip scar.

Even if it works you will still be left with a bald spot, laser isn’t going to regrow any hair for you, you need to put some grafts there to make it look natural. FUE is the only way unless Jones and other doctors prove that Acell really does work.
