Hi I am wanting laser treatment for red atrophic scars, they are on my face, they do not cover a huge area, but are evident. How much would treatment cost if I am only wanting treatment to two specific areas on my face? Thanks.


Atrophic scarring can be improved with the use of a fraxel laser. Fraxel laser will help to reorganize and regenerate collagen to help to lift indented
scars such as those from acne, or to smooth and flatten traumatic or
surgical scars.
The first step when looking to have a Fraxel treatment is for one of our doctors to assess
your skin’s suitability for the treatment. Not all skin conditions and
skin types are suitable, such as dark or olive skins, as you may be at higher risk of post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
Cost will depend on the size of the scar/treatment area.
