BHA peels help acne, pigment, and mild textural problems

Depressed scars will get much more benefit from Fraxel treatment, since the Fraxel laser penetrates so much more deeply than a BHA peel. BHA peels will help to treat ongoing acne, pigmentary problems like brown spots, and mild (not deep) textural issues. So, if your focus is the scar, do the Fraxel first.  if you also have problems with acne or pigment, you can do the BHA peel before or in between Fraxel.
