NCT ID: NCT00735254 Terminated - Clinical trials for Abdominoplasty Scars

Pulsed Dye Laser and Affirm Laser in the Treatment of Abdominoplasty Scars

Start date: July 2008
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of using a pulsed dye laser (the VBEAM), a non-ablative laser (the Affirm) and a combination of both lasers to improve the appearance of your surgical scar. Both the pulsed dye laser and Affirm laser are approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of scars. Surgical scars are a type of scar that can benefit from laser therapy. Redness and the appearance of small blood vessels near the surface of the skin (telangiectasias) develop in such scars as part of the normal healing process and usually spontaneously remit, but often slowly and incompletely. In many cases, lasers can accelerate the clearing of this redness and also improve scar texture.
