Purpose:

This study aims to determine if the 595nm Pulsed dye laser, the combined 595/1064nm Multiplex laser or no treatment results in a better outcome in the quality of the surgical scar using the multiplex cynergy laser, starting treatment the day of suture removal.


Study summary:

This study aims to determine if the 595nm Pulsed dye laser, the combined 595/1064nm Multiplex laser or no treatment results in a better outcome in the quality of the surgical scar using the multiplex cynergy laser, starting treatment the day of suture removal. Patients will be offered the opportunity of enrolling in the trial before their surgery. If they qualify and agree to participate they will sign informed consent and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) form. The surgical defect should be closed primarily, with the minimal scar length being 3cm. The scar will be randomized into 3 equal thirds, each third will randomly receive either: no treatment, 595nm PDL, or 595/1064nm Multiplex laser. A total of 3 laser treatments will be performed over a period of 3 weeks (one treatment session performed every week), and the patient will come in for a final follow up visit, for a final assessment of the scar using the Patient and Observer Scar Assessment Scale (POSAS) system.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Fitzpatrick skin types 1-3 - Suture line should be at least 3 cm long Exclusion Criteria: - The patient should not be receiving any alternate systemic, topical or intralesional treatment of the scars during the study - Pregnant or lactating females - Fitzpatrick skin type 4-6 - A history of keloids or hypertrophic scars
