If you form keloids, you have a very high risk, and an evaluation with your Board Certified Dermatologist or Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is necessary to a risk analysis and determine the best plan
If you havw problems with keloids, Fraxel Restore1550 laser would be safer than the Fraxel Repair CO laser.
If you have had multiple keloids, I would recommend using a nonablative laser like the Fraxel Resrore 1550 instead of the ablative CO2 Fraxel Repair Laser.
