  • Each passing day i learn something new
Hi

i've been collecting some information lately about acne resurfacing procedures and lately i stumble  upon fraxel laser technology. By the way, I live in Manila.  I heard about a lot of nice feedback regarding this procedure for acne scars and i thought giving it a try myself.  i suffered a lot of acne which all started way back during my highschool years pa and as a result gave me bad souvenirs.... acne scars which are too bad and helplessly making my self-esteem always down.... It's been like 10 years na... 10 years na rin akong nagtitiis. nahihiya... feeling ko nga am psychologically depressed na... somehow i manage to keep my head up during my highschool years that is nung hindi pa ako nagkakatagyawat pero nung  senior years na in highschool up to present.. affected na talaga ako. i hope to get these scars minimized if not totally disappear to regain my self esteem and get back to the real world.

by the way am a guy po. ... iba kasi minsan ang connotation pag lalaki ang mag uundergo ng mga ganitong cosmetic procedures e... parang sasabihin nung iba napakavain ...considering na lalaki ka.


sana someone is kind enough to provide some details about this fraxel procedure.

Thank you.

Hi rpmolecule,

i suggest don't let your anyone down you just by doing this. e ano kung lalaki ka dami naman ngayon na ang nag uundergo na ng mga medical enhancement procedures.. tsaka don't worry uso na naman ngayon ang "metrosexual" =)

well i've been collectively doing my own research as well kasi just like you am suffering from acne scars and so far eto yung information nakuha ko.

Options for treating acne scars are the following:

1. I inquired at Dermclinic and they have Dermabrasion which costs around 25,000 pesos

Pros- It will literally peel you skin off so wala daw scars na maiiwan. I dont know how effective this is since ito yung maximum version ng Diamond Peel. But based don sa nabasa kong articles hindi daw talaga maganda ito lalo na for sunken type of scars kasi when undergoing this procedure i-aabrade nila yung affected area meaning gagasgasin which is not really good for sunken scars.

CONS- 3 weeks downtime dahil mamumula daw talaga yung mukha ko

2. Fraxel Laser treatment - 15,000 pesos per session (based on personal research si Belo at yung Beverly Hills 6750 lang ang merong ganito). This is by far the most effective scar treatment daw and bagong technology pa lang to

PROS- sabi nila no downtime, you can go bac to work the next day if w/o complications encountered... totoo kaya?
CONS- Super mahal nga lang! You need to have about 4 or 5 session treatments para mawala talaga yung scars mo. masaklap diba?

Hay, Which session kaya should I undergo? Dermabrasion or Fraxel? Seriously though am afraid of dermabrasion rather than fraxel kasi tagal ng downtime ng dermabrasion e.. I have been searching the internet for a couple of months now to find the answers pero mukang divided din yung mga dermatologists of which is the better treatment.

So my question for dermatologists, if there are anyone here, alin po ba ang mas ok Fraxel or Dermabrasion? What would you recommend?

guys,

There are lots of treatments for acne scars. Before anything else though, you must remember that treating acne scars in general is difficult. Wala talagang procedure ang totally na mag eeradicate ng acne scars... Please do note however, there are treatments that can improve this.

I am a nurse po. But base na rin sa medical background ko i personally do my readings and this is what i understand for each treatment:

Microdermabrasion - uses diamond crystals; superficial treatment only; more sessions,; longer results

Dermabrasion - literally like sandpapering your face using a motorized rotary instrument; longer downtime and needs to be done in an operating room setting

Fractional laser - uses laser to resurface the skin. no downtime but a bit expensive. fraxel is a brand name.

Collagen Induction Therapy - uses a dermaroller/microneedle roller that creates small pores on the skin for better penetration of medicines applied; promotes collagen production thus better, younger looking skin; a new technique approved by US FDA. this is the new thing in acne scar treatment.

I hope this helps don sa mga nag iinquire.
