Hi, I'm in my early thirties and have generally good skin. I have some slight acne scars, freckles, and some fine lines around my eyes. I've talked to my doctor about getting a laser treatment. She suggested either one Deep FX treatment or several Fraxel treatments. I am having a hard time understanding the benefits of each choice. I want more youthful skin with better skin texture, and an even complexion. Do both treatments deliver natural looking results? Is one better?

Deep F/X vs Fraxel
Fraxel or Deep Fx for a 30 year old.
Everyone's skin is different, even in people who are the same age. In general I would favor Fraxel for improvement in texture, pore size and pigment in a younger patient. On the other hand acne scars even in a young person are deep defects that call for a deeper solution. Deep FX is my go- to laser for dermal acne scars. An evaluation is needed to determine the best laser for each individual person.
