Fraxel® Laser Treatment for Scars

If you have scars that are bothering you or making you feel self-conscious, you may wonder if any effective treatments are available to improve their appearance. Fraxel® laser treatment is an advanced resurfacing technique that can dramatically reduce the visibility of many types of scars, leading to smoother, clearer skin.

How Do Scars Form?

Scars form after an injury damages the deeper layers of your skin. As your skin heals, collagen fibers come together to mend the wound. However, they don’t always align perfectly, which is why scars often look different from the surrounding normal skin.

There are several types of scars, including raised keloid scars, pitted scars with a sunken appearance, contracture scars that tighten skin, and hypertrophic scars that are raised and red initially.

How Does Fraxel Laser Treatment Improve Scars?

Fraxel laser treatments use concentrated laser energy to create thousands of microscopic wounds in your scarred skin while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. This stimulates your body’s natural wound-healing response. As the skin heals, new collagen production replaces some of the abnormal scar collagen. Results after a single session are subtle, but multiple treatments can markedly improve scar appearance. Most people need 3 to 6 sessions spaced several weeks apart.

What Results Can You Expect from Fraxel?

With a series of Fraxel treatments, most patients significantly improve scar texture, color, and prominence. Pitted scars appear less deep, contracture scars relax, and raised scars flatten. Your skin also becomes smoother and takes on a more uniform, healthy glow. While scars are rarely eliminated completely, the reduction in their appearance after Fraxel treatments can be dramatic.

Is Fraxel Suitable for All Scar Types?

Fraxel is effective for a wide range of scars, including acne scars, trauma scars, and even certain surgical incision scars. The treatment isn’t usually recommended until 12 months after an injury or surgery to give the scar enough time to heal and mature. Very new hypertrophic scars may also need additional healing time upon initial inflammation. An evaluation of your scar and medical history will determine if a Fraxel laser treatment can help.
