How Can I Decide Between FX Laser and Fraxel for Acne Scars?

Lasers and acne scarring
I don't think you are asking the correct question. Both of these lasers can be used effectively but each requires a great deal of skill and experience. A professionial driver will do well behind the wheel of any vehicle. A novice will struggle even when driving a great machine. Further, I would almost certainly consider a surgical approach initially when treating moderate scarring in Hispanic skin.

Fraxel or FX Laser for Acne Scars?
Both Total FX and Fraxel repair are excellent treatments for the improvement of acne scars in medium toned Hispanic skin. There is an increased incidence of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) with both, but with time the PIH fades.
It is more important to choose your physician most carefully rather than between the two laser systems. Good luck and be well.
