Scar Reduction with Fraxel**
Reduction of Surgical Scar
This patient had a series of three Fraxel treatments to reduce the surgical scar from Mohs procedure, making it much less noticeable. Patient also used Biocorneum topical scar treatment after surgery and in conjunction with the Fraxel laser therapy. More
Our Fraxel laser patients have come in for a topical numbing application at least 45 minutes before the procedure to make the process more comfortable. Depending on the amount of surface area covered, the treatment time may vary. In this case, the laser treatment took about 10 minutes to complete. After doing the laser procedure, we immediately apply topical vitamins and hydrating elements to enhance post-procedural results, then allow patients to cool down for about 10 more minutes. In this case, the patient's total treatment time was about 1.5 hours. After treatment, patients need to expect about 3-5 days of mild-moderate skin peeling. Each individual result and treatment time may vary. Please speak to your provider on what to expect before and after the procedure.
