CO2 Fraxel Resurfacing
The most effective laser for resurfacing of acne, surgical & traumatic scars is the CO2 Fraxel. It works by removing the top layers of skin to a precise depth. Improvement in the scar is usually noted as the skin heals from the laser treatment. Please see details on Fraxel Resurfacing on the Fraxel page.
A filler substance is injected beneath the surface of the skin where it temporarily plumps and smoothes the skin. Dr. Mann generally recommends the Hyaluronic acid fillers, like Restylane & Juvederm for their combination of safety, smooth and natural appearance, and good duration. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of human skin and is the framework in which skin cells live.
Microdermabraison comfortably and precisely removes away the top layer of skin. This procedure generally requires a minimum of 5-6 treatments, each separated by about a week. By periodically removing the skin’s surface, consisting of bacteria and dead skin cells, your skin rejuvenates. It tends to cause mild improvement, and can be used in people with mild acne scars.
