Fraxel treatment of scars can be done in young patients
Scar revision including acne scars can be performed in very young individuals. Collagen formation can result deep in the dermis to correct depressed scars by using Fraxel Re:store laser. For young patients I would prefer this to the more aggressive Fraxel Re:pair CO2 laser. The Fraxel Re:store requires more treatments but the downtime is minimal compared to more aggressive lasers, and they are tolearated with the use of numbing cream which eliminates the need for anesthetic injections and pain medication.
Fraxel Laser Age Limit, and Late Adverse Effects?
There has been no late adverse effects from the use of CO2 lasers. CO2 lasers have been used on the skin for at least the past 20 years.
Good luck and be well.
