If you havw problems with keloids, Fraxel Restore1550 laser would be safer than the Fraxel Repair CO laser.

If you have had multiple keloids, I would recommend using a nonablative laser like the Fraxel Resrore 1550 instead of the ablative CO2 Fraxel Repair Laser.

If you form keloids, you have a very high risk, and an evaluation with your Board Certified Dermatologist or Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is necessary to a risk analysis and determine the best plan
