Fraxel Laser and Sarcoid

Have you ever used the fraxel laser on a sarcoidosis patient?

I’m going to assume that you’re asking the question because you have sarcoid lesions in a visible area???  I haven’t used the Fraxel on sarcoid lesions and my concern would be that it would aggravate them.  If you have a doctor who thinks they can be improved with a Fraxel, be sure to try it on a very small test area first before committing to  any expensive treatments.  We will often offer to do a test area at no charge for a patient if there isn’t much data on a particular problem.  Good luck!  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
