Which Fraxel Laser for Deep Surgery Scar?

The higher wavelength of Fraxel treats deeper scar right? I have a deep surgery scar; which one will work better between Fraxel repair or Fraxel restore?

Fraxel Re:pair is usually done only once. Possible you can have it repeated once in six to twelve months after the surgery. Fraxel Re:store can be performed more than 12 times several weeks apart and acne scars continue to improve. Your surgical scar needs to be analyzed to determine which is the better laser for it. The width, depth, color and texture all determine what treatment is best.

Fraxel for Deep Surgery Scars

Hi Noah,

Both Fraxel re:store and Fraxel re:pair help with deep surgery scars.  Fraxel re:pair is the more aggressive treatment and requires more recovery while Fraxel re:store recovery is quick, easy, but would require more treatments.

Good luck and be well.
