Scars are depressions or indentations in the skin that occur after a medical condition such as Acne or after a surgical incision. When they’re on the face or other visible areas, scars can carry the stigma of adolescence long after the acne is gone, or they can serve as unpleasant reminders of a past surgery.
Acne scars can occur as the skin heals from pimples, whiteheads and blackheads that form when oil, bacteria and dead cells get stuck below the skin’s surface. Acne scars are typically indented marks or raised, red areas that sometimes give the skin a wavy appearance. Surgical scars, meanwhile, form naturally as skin heals from an incision.
Fraxel is a laser treatment that helps you to remove years from your appearance. The technology utilizes thousands of microscopic laser columns – each just one-tenth the diameter of a hair follicle – to treat a fraction of the skin at a time, without affecting the surrounding tissue. These laser columns stimulate the production of younger, smoother, healthier skin to replace damaged tissue.
