Fraxel Laser for scars

Multiple treatments with the Fraxel restore laser can help to blend this scar and make it less noticeable but it will not completely remove it.  I often use subcision in conjunction with laser to achieve the best results.  Good luck

Fraxel Repair Laser in combination with subcision give best results for rolling scars.

In my hands subcision and Fraxel Repair Laser on the same day give the very best results.
