Thank you for your question. There are several different laser treatments that can help improve your scar. Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeons office for a treatment plan that will work best for you.
Fraxel is the gold standard for treating scars. I also utilize the eMatrix laser since it is "color blind" and am able to use it for scars regardless of the skin type. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with expertise in cosmetic lasers. Best, Dr. Green
Fraxel® resurfacing laser is the current gold standard for resurfacing scars. Since scars may require different treatments and lasers for best resolution, please consult an expert aesthetic laser dermatologist for your evaluation.
Fraxel is a laser skin rejuvenation treatment that resurfaces your outer skin, erasing imperfections. It also encourages the production of collagen, a protein found in connective tissue.The result is clearly visible lines, folds and wrinkles. Fraxel laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive technique that affects only about 20 percent of the facial skin exposed to it. The most common side effects of Fraxel laser treatment are swelling and skin redness, which should subside within a couple of days. Other temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. The risk of infection or scarring is very limited
