Profractional Spot Treatments

Recommended Posts

The next step in my scar journey is supposed to be a 35% TCA peel (performed by a PS). I do have concerns about this as discussed in another post.

Fortunately I have isolated scarring so my other option is spot treatments with the Profractional laser at setting of about 500-600 microns, 22% overlap.

Should I be concerned with spot treatments? Anyone have experience?

I have no experience with Profracitional lasers, but I will say that the reviews for this particular laser are abysmal. There are reported complications with pinhole scarring, lines, and weird demarcations from the laser. My guess is that erbium lasers such as the profractional laser do not cause collagen contraction like co2 lasers because they impart little to no heat. They are almost purely ablative.
