  • This laser does not tighten very much but it is the safer choice of lasers (Fraxel) 
  • Fraxel can be used on ethnic skin but risk of hyper/hypo pigmentation is greater
  • Fraxel can be used on ethnic skin but proceed with caution you still run the risk of discoloration and scarring
  • In general, darker skin (types IV-VI) have a greater risk hyper/hypo pigmentation from laser treatments. 
  • I would recommend the Fraxel restore over the repair, because there is less of a risk of discoloration with the restore. 
  • You will also need to be very careful to avoid the sun before and after your treatment, and your Dermatologist will have you use certain creams to minimize your risk of discoloration.
  • It is vital to undergo a full pre assessment to ensure that your skin type is fully assessed and to be  accurate about your medical history. This particular procedure might not be the right treatment for you.  It is crucial that the Doctor does a full History and Physical Examination and listens to your concerns.  It very important to understand the individual needs of each patient because one procedure could work on one patient and then not another.
  • Each patient’s condition is carefully evaluated and the best treatment(s) are chosen to ensure an optimal outcome. Treatments are performed by Dr. Gary who has extensive cosmetic dermatology experience and training. This allows the Doctor to offer top-quality services in every area of the cosmetic dermatology field, while ensuring patients safety and satisfaction.
