Westside Laser Dermatology is Brisbane’s only Specialist Fraxel laser clinic. The addition of the Dual Fraxel laser to our Acne Specialist Clinic enables us to treat acne scars at various depths and skin types with excellent clinical outcomes. Fraxel skin laser resurfacing is the pioneer of ‘ fractional photothermolysis’, the latest technology in which hundreds of laser columns are placed into the deeper layers of the skin- where acne scars lie. Fraxel Laser breaks the bonds of scars and allows collagen to naturally heal, improving skin texture and acne scars. The number of Fraxel treatments will depend on your skin type and scar type. Most patients require between 3-5 sessions.
