Once again Dr. Lupo is right on in answering your question regarding Fraxel restore and repair use in Asian skin. It is most important to choose your treating physician carefully.
Good luck and be well.
In my opinion, Fraxel Restore can be used safely and effectively in ethnic skin if: 1. you recieve proper pre-treatment skin care to reduce your risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and 2. your doctor is experienced with the settings necessary to properly treat your skin. Fraxel Repair is riskier, but not a total "no". Talk to your dermatologist about your skin, what you want corrected and if and which one right for you.
