What is Fraxel Laser Resurfacing?

Fraxel Laser Resurfacing is a laser treatment that uses fractional laser technology to restore your skin to its younger, smoother, and fresher feel. It has been approved by the FDA to be able to softly and effectively resurface your skin. It visibly improves the texture and tone of your skin and erases unwanted brown spots, acne scars, surgical scars, sun-damaged-skin, and stretch marks. In your youth, your skin creates collagen, a form of protein that maintains your skin’s youthfulness and tightness. As you age and get more sun exposure, the collagen begins to breakdown faster than your body can reproduce them. Consequently your skin loses its tightness and begins to form wrinkles, lines and spots.

How Does it Work?

Fraxel Laser Resurfacing stimulates your skin to produce a smoother, younger, and healthier skin to replace damaged and aged skin. It achieves this by shooting painless superficial wounds that stimulates your skin to produce and rebuild collagen. Rejuvenating your skin from the inside out. The amount of sessions needed range from 1 to 6 depending on how many our doctors recommend. Every session is usually 4 to 6 weeks apart.

There are many things that you could try to improve the appearance of the keloid. Mainly these are treated by local injections of steroids that help to decrease the size and smooth them. Also you can benefit by the use of laser rays. The Fraxel is approved by the FDA to treat scars. Also the PDL is a vascular laser that can diminish the red appearance of many keloides. We have a great deal of experience treating keloides and we see that the appearance is improved significantly. An evaluation will determine the best and most effective treatment for your situation.
Keloides are scars that are protuberant. They are the body’s response to trauma, and result in excessive healing. Some patients have an inherited tendency to produce these elevated scars. They can even happen spontaneously, for example after a pimple. However, they can also occur after an acute event where there is a lot of inflammation in a patient that does not have a tendency to scar, for example after a burn. In patients that do not have a tendency to scar, a re-excision of the lesion when there is no trauma can result in a more cosmetic scar. Other treatment options include serial injections with corticosteroids, occlusive pressure dressings, radiation, or a combination of these.
Tattoos can be treated with lasers effectively. However, the results vary depending on the color of the tattoo. The black tattoos respond better. Also old, homemade tattoos are the easiest to treat. It usually takes 3-5 treatments for optimal results. The laser feels like a rubber band being hit against your skin.
