Yes, the Starlux 1540 non-ablative fractional Erbium laser can treat hypertrophic and keloid scars, as well as depressed scars.

Knight -thanks for posting about this i just saw someone post about it on a uk forum the plastic surgeon response was this

Recell has been around for a few years, but because it uses an expensive enzyme kit it hasn't really been used much in the UK, mainly because reconstructive surgeons usually use new technologies on the NHS before we tend to use them privately. Because Recell is so quite expensive, we haven't really made much use of it on the NHS.

If you wanted to see a surgeon about scar revision that would probably be your best first step. If the surgeon mentions Recell then you can have a discussion about its merits but if the surgeon doesn't mention Recell, you should ask about it.

Improving a scar involves many options, as I'm sure you know, and although many surgeons will have seen Recell and will have been trained in it, it will probably have been several years since they were trained in it. I, for example, was trained in it in 2005 but have never had the opportunity to use it.



I will be contacting them to find out about price etc

As someone mentioned cutting and restitching doesnt sound like the best anymore its 2010!
