Fraxel on the body
Fraxel is a great laser for treating scars. There are different settings of the laser and depending on the area and goal of the treatment you can have just redness or sandpaper like skin for days to weeks. Fraxel on the body takes generally longer than the face. I often prefer eMatrix for scars when you are of Hispanic ethnicity. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience in Fraxel and lasers for the best results.
Healing post Fraxel Treatment
Treating Hispanic skin does pose a higher probability for hyperpigmentation so it is important to stay out of the sun pre and post procedure. It is also not recommended to have a laser treatment performed when your skin is tanned.
Please consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist before you next Fraxel procedure.
