Will Fraxel Laser Make Active Acne Worse? Will It Cause a Flare Up if You Are in Remission?

Fraxel can temporarily make acne worse but in long run it makes it better
The Fraxel Dual can stimulate acne for the first couple weeks. Acne prone patients I put on minocin to help prevent having a flair. However, it reduces the sebaceous glands and thereby helps with acne in the long run.
