Question : I have been told that one of the greatest advantages of using a fraxel laser is that it promotes new collagen and skin cell growth. Is this true, and how would it change the look of my face?
Answer : Many lasers promote new collagen growth. Lasers like the Fraxel do promote some collagen growth and can also change the color of the skin (lighten the skin). Depending on which wavelength of the Fraxel it used, it can have different affects. The visual affect of the collagen growth can be subtle.
