Post surgical scarring can be the sole reason why one may not wish to have surgery. Scars can be ameliorated with techniques such as collagen remodeling with laser genesis and injectables. Topical treatment is also available to decrease the discoloration or elevation of the scar.
Other spots on the legs and feet include large areas of brown discoloration and staining of the skin. This is treated with topical ointments and bleaches as well as intense pulsed light.
