    besides a bunch of normal ones that are older and have turned white, i have a very deep and red one that is very sensitive. i believe the right word is hypertrophic or keloidal?
    well its raised, dark and hurts to touch.
    can i have it lasered anyway? would it go away? will lasering them even make them go away at all or will they just fade a little?
    will i ever be able to get a tan in the summer without looking like a zebra with shiny stripes all over my arms?
    thanks for any advice!

    I think it could help i would phone and ask a lot of questions to the professional and see his work before putting money out. I now others have had it and it worked well depends on the doctor doing it i think hugs
