What type of Fraxel Laser is best for Stretch Mark Reduction?

There appear to be many Fraxel laser machines but I'm unsure which one generates the best results. I would appreciate getting some insight from the community of doctors as to the best modern machines to use for old white stretch marks. Thanks!

Micro needling RF over lasers

I prefer micro needling using INFINI RF with an insulated needle. Results are better with less pigmentation changes and downtime compared to Co2 fractional and much better than non ablative Fraxel. Having said that, I usually say only expect a 30-50% improvement after 3 sessions. Like Dr Emer wrote, there is no cure.

There is no "cure" for stretch marks but lasers, microneedling and skin care can give significant improvement. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
