Fraxel Laser: Q&AAsk a Question
Fraxel Vs CO2 Laser for Acne Scar
I have a small area on my cheek with a few shallow atrophic acne scars. I've had a TCA peel (35%) and full face Erbium. Dermatologists say it isn't bad enough for C02 but haven't been dramatically improved with other options. They are now offering Fraxel. But I'm afraid that they offered it because it’s new and expensive.
I'd rather do 1 shot with C02 rather than 5 with Fraxel. Are there real benefits to Fraxel, other than relieving people of a few days downtime? I don't think that's worth it. Picture isn't that accurate. Thanks!
