Is there any risk of developing dramatically different color skin if I only do the fraxel restore on the temples of my head to treat very mild acne scars. The skin on that area is very thin and no much elasticity, would that be an inconvenient for laser? Would i see results faster or slower?
Fraxel Restore for Acne Scars on Temple Areas?

Fraxel restore Spot Treatment of Temples for Mild Acne Scarring
You should be able to treat mild acne scars in just the temple areas with a Fraxel restore series without any problems. There is always a slight risk of hyperpigmentation, more so in darker skin types. Hyperpigmentation eventually fades with time. I have found that more so than with color differences, patients are aware of texture and tone differences between treated and untreated areas.
Good luck and be well.
