Side effects possible with any laser procedure
Yes, side effects are possible and include scarring, infection and skin colour changes. I suggest you see a Board certified Plastic or Dermatologist for an evaluation and consultation discussing the risks of the procedure.
All the bestDr Davin Lim
There are two types of fractional lasers now, the
more gentle, erbium-type fractional lasers, like the Fraxel (often called
“non-ablative” by doctors), and the CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser systems. A
series of treatments (generally 3-5) are performed, usually one every 3-8
weeks. The benefits of fractional laser treatments are achieved with little
discomfort and minimal risk. The main side effects are temporary swelling,
redness, an accentuation of the brown spots, crusting, and an occasional bruise
or small superficial blister (like a sunburn blister). Your laser
center should review with you side effects in your consent form.
Is there any side effects of fractional laser treatment?
Yes. There are many risks of fractional laser treatments, but if pre and post-operative instructions are followed the risks are significantly reduced.
