Persistent pink/red color after a laser procedure.
This is hard to answer because there are at least 20-30 different “fractionated” lasers now and they all have somewhat different effects. Can you write back and tell me exactly which laser? More on Fraxel and more on Co2 lasers.
Also, sadly, all doctors are not equally well trained. For a skin problem like this, you really want a board-certified dermatologist, not a plastic surgeon. Plastic surgeon are generally good at surgery but often have little training in laser procedures generally other then 2-7 day courses. More on laser problems.
Most dermatologists now get training in their residencies in laser procedures, including how to deal with complications/problems. Please see a board-certified dermatologist about this persistent redness. Generally, persistent redness at seven months indicates a problem. A second opinion would be a good idea.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
