The look of our skin, in part, determines our overall level of self-confidence. When scars are present on visible areas of the body, we may try to hide beneath clothing. Rather than hide your skin, you can reduce the appearance of scars with Fraxel® Dual treatment, offered in our comfortable Birmingham dermatology practice. Using this technology to treat acne scarring, as well as scarring from surgery or injury, we have seen patients experience beautiful improvements in their skin.
The beauty of Fraxel® Dual treatment is that this approach to skin resurfacing is non-invasive. Using fractionated laser energy, we are able to treat a wide variety of dermatological concerns. In addition to scarring, Fraxel® is a suitable treatment for stretch marks, melasma, acne, sun spots, and other signs of aging. Through a few treatment sessions, after which there is no downtime, the appearance of skin discolorations and scars is greatly reduced.
Fractional laser treatments have been widely used in dermatology for several years, with excellent results. The overall results that are possible with this treatment come from the fact that small areas of “damage” occur in larger areas of healthy skin. This microscopic approach prompts a rapid healing process in which collagen production has a powerful effect on skin.
The FDA-approved Fraxel® laser is ideal for the removal of scars, and may be used on various types of scarring. Even surgical scars that healed differently than expected can be revised and reduced through a number of fractional laser treatments in our comfortable office. We offer both Fraxel re:store and Fraxel re:pair at Skin Wellness Center of Alabama. During your consultation with Dr. Hartman or Dr. Dyck, you can discuss your skin concerns and determine which type of treatment is most suitable to accomplish your desired goals.
Dr. Hartman and Dr. Dyck have extensive training in treating a variety of skin concerns. Fractional laser treatments are one tool we have at our disposal for the improvement of specific skin concerns such as scars. If you have scars from acne or a skin injury, you can see improvement with the help from your skilled dermatologist.
