Can a Person Who Keloids Have Fraxel Restore Treatments?

Fraxel and Keloids...
It is not common to get "true Keloid" after laser treatments on the face. In all the years I have had Fraxel in my office and all the variety of patients I have treated, I have never seen a Keloid be caused by Fraxel to the face.
A Keloid scar is much more common to form on the body after a trauma to the skin rather than on the face.
Hope this helps.
