Laser resurfacing is ideal for preventing skin cancer.
Laser resurfacing treatments shouldn’t be avoided due to a
history of skin cancer in the family. If anything, the opposite is true.
Fraxel® physically removes the surface skin cells that are most exposed to
accumulated sun damage, and therefore more likely to become cancerous over
time. Laser resurfacing physically removes these damaged cells, resulting in
more even skin pigmentation, fewer wrinkles and increased collagen production for
skin that not only looks better, but is actually healthier.
