Best Options for Hypopigmented Acne Scar?

I have read a lot about dark acne scarring; I have the opposite. I have some acne scars on my neck and chest that are totally white. Can they still be fixed? If so, what are the best treatments for hypopigmentation?

Hypopigmentation is tough to fix, but improves with Fraxel re:store or re:pair

Until fractional laser, there wasn't any real good treatment for hypopigmentation. Nowadays, fractional lasers like the Fraxel re:store or Fraxel re:pair offer some hope. I have personal experience with the re:pair and the Lux 1540. Both have shown improvements in hypopigmented scars. Temper your expectations. It won't be eliminated, just improved.
