I’m south Asian with a medium complex in my 30’s. I have acne scars and marks on my cheeks. I started fraxel laser several months ago and have completed at least 10 treatments however sees not much of a difference. Recently I started the matrix laser because I have been hearing that it is better than the fraxel. Ihave done 3 matrix treatments however sees minimal difference…should I continue or is there some other option for me?pls help...i'm desperate!!!!!

EMatrix is successful in specific types of acne scars
eMatrix is successful when applied thoughtfully for the types of scars in which it has been shown to be successful - atrophic acne scars, some ice pick scars (Dr. Raffy's criteria apply here), rolling scars, boxed scars and also certain burn scars and surgical scars.
I hope this helps.
