Experimental: Fractional CO2 laser Treatment
This is the area getting treated with CO2 laser.
Device: Fractional CO2 laser treatment
Patient will be treated with fractional laser treatment over the areas with fibrosis.
Other Name: Lumenis Ultrapulse CO2 laser
Experimental: No Treatment
This is the area receiving no treatment.
Other: No treatment
Patient will also have an area that is not being treated with CO2 laser. This is the area not getting treatment.
- Improvement in fibrosis (% reduction in fibrosis surface area) compared to controlled sites [ Time Frame: 6-12 months ]The primary end point is % reduction of the fibrosis surface area compared to control sites at 6-12 months.
- Adverse events [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Measurement adverse events (infection, scarring, ulceration, excessive bleeding, poor wound healing)
