Fraxel repair for surgical scar?

Hello everybody, I had a excision on my upper lip. Unfortunately the scar developed to be deep red and depressed. 4 weeks after the excision the doctor treated the scar with a fractional co2 laser and after another 4 weeks again. After the swelling was gone I realized that the surrounding skin is even more depressed and the scar looks even bigger. 5 weeks after last treatment it's still the same. Who has experience with fraxel repair or fraction co2 laser for depressed scars? Can the treatment makes the appearance worse instead of improving it? Or does it just need so much time to see an improvement? Thanks a lot and sorry for mistakes Ana

I just had fraxel repair done 2 weeks ago. I too feel like the scar looks deeper and worse than before. It is a depressed scar in the middle of my forehead. Crossing my fingers that it just needs time but I am afraid that isn't true.
