Is needling a better alternative to Fraxel for wrinkles and redness?
Doctor Answers 5
Lasers such as Fraxel are superior to microneedling
Fraxel laser is the gold standard for wrinkles and acne scars. Redness is best treated with the V-Beam laser. Microneedling will have no effect on eliminating redness and only work superficially on scars. For the best cosmetic result please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience in Fraxel laser.
No, Needling is helpful but no even close to being as good as laser resurfacing for wrinkles.
