I'm a 28 year old Asian female. I have nevus of ota around my right eye and temples. Also, the acne scarring is pretty moderate and the pitted scars have blue color on the bottom. I had the nevus of ota treated about 2 years ago with Yag laser (two treatments 6 months apart) which helped fade it. I'm wondering if Fraxel would work on the acne scars and the nevus of ota, or would somehow worsen the nevus?
Fraxel Effective on Asians with Nevus of Ota?

Q Switched Laser
Nevus of Ota is a condition in which there is a blue-grey discoloration, usually on one side of the face, in the distribution of the ophthalmic/maxillary nerve. It is due to the placement of the melanocytes in the upper layer of the dermis. Ocular involvement is frequent. Malignant transformation is very rare.
