Hello Doctors. My Scar is More Raised After Fraxel Dual?

3 weeks ago I did my first Fraxel dual session to smooth out a scar I had due to a tattoo removal. It was like an imprinting with hypopigmentation of my old tattoo and a little bit raised. After Fraxel the color is a little bit red and even more raised. Will it be improved over time? Thanks.

It's quite possible that the scar will still improve with time, but you need to see you treating doctor to be certain that you are healing normally.  Complication with Fraxel are quite rare but its good to be certain.  Best to you.
