Question:

Which method is best to use for electrolysis scarring?

Answer:

Scarring from electrolysis can be difficult to treat. A laser such as the Fraxel laser can help to remodel the skin and smooth out the  skin scars, but not remove them completely. Also, if you have any hypopigmentation (white dots) as a result of electrolysis, the Fraxel laser may also help to migrate melanocytes, or skin pigment producing cells, into the white areas.
