I think I agree on that one. Yes, it is true, some lasers can work wonders in resurfacing the skin. Lasers can diminish scarring, helps burns, and reduce pores and acne pitting. On the other hand, lasers can also make scars worse, create burns, and enlarge pitting and pores. Actually, the potential side effects are quite scary.That is why it is extremely important to only seek laser treatment from a qualified plastic surgeon. Unskilled hands are not a good thing. Does anyone have a positive laser story? Negative one?

What type of laser therapy do you mean? From what I understand, there are different types of lasers that target different types of skin imperfections.

I would like to issue a word of caution about lasers. In unqualified hands (and sometimes even in qualified hands) they can do quite a bit of damage. I have read horror stories about burns, scarring, loss of facial fat, skin atrophy, rapid aging, and other assorted problems resulting from lasers. Be sure to do a lot of research before choosing this method. And, if you do decide it is for you, only allow a qualified doctor to perform the procedure.

Skin Therapy "I completely agree, parents should have a prime responsibility in helping early when it comes to external skin problems such as scars and keloids, before the situation gets worse, and makes kids less confident. I think that a type of skin therapy should be used early, including any type of non abrasive technology including Laser Therapy."

Yes, adults have a big responsibility when they raise children. They can help their sons and daughters become confident adults, or they can contribute to feelings of inadequacy and insecurity (however, I am sure the latter is rarely an intended objective).

Still, we must also realize that when we become adults, we have control over our own thoughts, moods, and feelings. If we feel inadequate or insecure because of a scar or other perceived imperfection, then it is our responsibility to seek out help.

I believe we hold a lot of power over our own destiny, and we must use that power wisely.

The recent article on Scars1 about children and scarring is quite informative. I completely agree that visible childhood scars should be adequately addessed in chidhood to thwart psychological problems later in life. Children are quite sensitive, and they are still formulating their sense of identity. If scars are brushed aside like they are no big deal, then the feelings surrounding them may also get brushed aside. Still, they almost always resurface at a later time. Therefore, parents should try to keep an open line of communication with their children instead of pretending the marks do not exist. If this article is any indication, children will be better adjusted if this occurs.
