Hi Claudia. Yes, a fractional CO2 laser like Fraxel Repair would help lighten up your dark circles. However, this laser is not recommended for patients of darker skin tones. You appear fair-skinned, but it is difficult to determine your skin tone from the pictures. For patients with darker skin, Fraxel Dual can be used to alleviate dark circles.
