Dealing with unattractive surgical scars can shatter the self-esteem. Thankfully, Fraxel laser treatment can minimize the appearance of surgical and traumatic scars with minimal downtime. Fraxel is a non-invasive fractional laser treatment used for treating sun spots, fine lines, melasma, acne, stretch marks, scarring, surgical scarring and traumatic scarring. The Fraxel laser produces numerous microscopic laser columns that penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate your skin’s own healing process. The damaged skin is then replaced with collagen produced by your own body. The result is a smoother, healthier appearing scar.
Fractional lasers treat microscopic areas of the skin in each pulse, leaving the surrounding area intact. Treating the skin in this way allows for faster healing, compared to traditional resurfacing lasers. Using a fractional laser is safer and often more effective than the older non-fractional lasers.
With over half a million procedures already performed, Fraxel has an excellent safety record. It is safe to use on all surgical scars and will not compromise the surgery in any way. Fraxel laser is safe and effective on all skin colors because it does not target melanin, the pigmented cells in the skin.
