Lasers are popping up everywhere, everyday. We live in a real neat time where we've got a lot of options for skin rejuvenation, building new collagen. They're finding a lot of neat ways that the lasers can work with a lot less downtime which is really important to most people. We don't have time to take two weeks off work just for a skin treatment.

So if you've got some old acne scars, if you're using good skin care products and still having issues with pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, just sallow droop skin, Fraxel might be a good option for you. It is a little painful, so it is something that we require you to come in earlier, put on some numbing cream, but we'll talk about that at a consultation.

And most people are a little run for the rest of the day, but don't take any time off work. They cost roughly between $500 and $800 of treatment. Some people have can do up to three to four treatments if you're interested.

Gretta Handley, Patient Care Manager at Davis Plastic Surgery, talks about how Fraxel treatments are being used for skin rejuvenation and are a useful tool if you're looking to build new collagen or rid yourself of old acne scars.

Hi, I was in a car accident almost 8 years ago when I was a teenager and it was really bad. I got this permanent scar right above my eye and right below my eyebrow and I had to get stitches and it is just this indented line that runs across into the bridge of my nose that is a little bit pinkish. It isn't really noticeable from a distance but for someone sitting right across from me it is very noticeable. I was wondering if Fraxel Laser Treatment can treat shallow, minor lacerations like the one above my eye and which scar treatment, CO2 or Fraxel, would work better for my shallow laceration.
