How effective are lasers on scars?
Can anyone help me with this?

When it comes to scar treatment lasers are only helpful with discoloration of the scar. When it comes to treating keloid scars,hypertonic scars, or raised scars - lasers unfortunately will not improve them at all.

Crap those are the EXACT type scars I'm trying to get rid of. What else can I do for them then?

In the past I have used silicone sheets for scars. They're a bitch to wear 24/7 for months at a time but I think that's the only thing that works. Even with those don't expect amazing results, at least I didn't have any with my type of skin.

Does someone know how long after surgery you can begin laser treatment? I had an arm lift 7 wks ago and left with some nasty scars! The way the doctor did them you can see them when I put my arms down and they face out in back of me eewwww! I just got scar sheets and I wanna use lasers too but I don't know how soon I can use skin lasers after surgery?

You can use laser after surgery when all the swelling after the surgery has been gone.
Otherwise, it won't give good results.

Laser scar removal can allow you to stop hiding behind makeup-or clothing to cover up your scars. It will give you the confidence to let the real you shine.

Acne, surgery, or accidents can leave unsightly scars. Although these scars are part of the skinís natural healing process, they can be inconvenient and make you self-conscious. Luckily, you donít have to live with them anymore. Lasers can help make these scars less noticeable. Laser scar removal is permanent, so you wonít need to keep going back once the procedure is done. It is much more effective than trying miracle creams or serums that promise to remove your scars. It is especially useful for facial scars because it so effectively removes the scar. Plus, it requires just a day or two for recovery, and it is less invasive than procedures involving scalpels and knives.

ACell for scar revision
Has anyone used Acell's Matristem to revise scar tissue? It's been on 60 minutes, Oprah and CNN. Their sales reps won't answer questions unless you are a doctor, which seems unfair since we are the consumers and we want to be totally informed about products and procedures.

I'll do some research ;)
