Q: I have acne scars on my cheeks. My girlfriend said she used to have acne scars but them removed with fractional laser treatments. Can you tell me about that?
A: Yes, fractional laser is an extremely effective way of reducing and/or eliminating acne scars, as well as other types of scars elsewhere on the body. Energy pulses from this specialized fractional laser breakdown and destroy scar tissue, activating new cell growth. Fresh, healthy skin replaces the scar tissue.
Fractional laser has other uses as well. It can also successfully remove stretch marks from pregnancy or changes in your weight. Melissa, which is a discoloration of the skin, can be treated with fractional laser treatments; and it is also very helpful for softening or eliminating fine lines and wrinkles.
At SkinHealth we have years of experience with fractional laser and would love to have you come in for a consultation.
