Does Fraxel Laser Help Prevent Basel Cell Carcinona?

Fraxel for Basal Cell Carcinoma


Fraxel laser does not prevent Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC).  The cause of most BCC's is a lifetime of sun exposure, so the only prevention is sunscreen. Also, basal cell carcinoma is very easy to treat when caught early so get a skin check with your dermatologist.
