fraxel treatment for mild scars?

Recommended Posts

I have finished a series of five professional microdermabrasion, which gives roughly 25% improvement in half of a year. Now I am planning on starting fraxel instead. Could anybody give any suggestion for the fraxel settings for my skin? or any other methods I probably need to smooth out the holes? My pics are in my gallery. Thanks.

i didn't find that microdermabrasion had any lasting effects for me -- only temporary ones. fraxel seems to have more lasting effects, though i haven't done it myself. i am doing self-needling, only a bit at a time, but it seems to be working great...and i think that is the same principle behind fraxel: going into/under the scar to stimulate collagen and re-create growth.

I had very deep microdermabrasion. Deep to the extent that I have scads in some places afterwards. After they peel off, there is some improvement, though I still have my scars there.

hey your scars look a lot like mine, how did you get rid of the redness and discoloration and hyperpigmentation..

Time is the key I guess for discoloration.

How does cool touch 2 laser work as compared to fraxel? Have you done fraxel as well? How much is the cost for one cool touch 2 laser treatment?
