Fraxel Laser for Wrinkles on the Knees?

Would Fraxel repair be the thing for wrinkles over the top of knees?

This is not a good use of this laser and may lead to scarring

The Fraxel re:pair is a great laser, but not outside the face and neck. Even the neck sometimes poses problems, but if you go to other areas you are likely to see scarring. This is one of those areas that may not have any great solution, so it may be best to try creams and lotions to moisturize it rather than considering a major laser procedure. Sorry!

Fraxel for Wrinkles Above the Knees....I Don't Think So

Hi C Boy,

I have not heard of Fraxel being used for wrinkles above the knees.  I doubt that it would be very effective in that area.  I would advise longer shorts or pants.

Good luck and be well.
