Which method is best to use for electrolysis scarring?


Scarring from electrolysis can be difficult to treat, as it is often hypopigmented (lost colour) and possibly indented. I would recommend Fraxel laser as this can help to improve both of these problems. It can help to improve hypopigmentation by recruiting melanocytes (cells that produce skin pigment) into the areas of lost pigment. Aslo it can help stimulate collagen to increase the height of indented scars.
