It is not common to get "true Keloid" after laser treatments on the face.  In all the years I have had Fraxel in my office and all the variety of patients I have treated, I have never seen a Keloid be caused by Fraxel to the face. 

A Keloid scar is much  more common to form on the body after a trauma to the skin rather than on the face.

Hope this helps.
