I am 21 year old african-american..I'm looking to receive fraxel treatment for hyperpigmentation on my back. Will I see good results with this? Currently I'm using topical Tazorac,Duac,Finachea,and a hydroquinone cream tp keep breakouts gone and help with pigmentation. We've done TCA peels without MUCH of a difference and I'm wondering if I should continue with the TCA peels or if I should go for the fraxel treatment. Obviously it would be very expensive but the TCA peels are adding up also.
Fraxel on the BACK..is It Worth It?

Fraxel not always reliable for such problems
you have a difficult problem and no treatment i know of, including fraxel, can be counted on to solve it with certainty. if you can afford to try it, you might see it provide improvement....but if so-so results will make you very sorry you spent the money, then probably shouldn't do it.
