Fraxel Laser: Q&AAsk a Question
Is Skin Darkening and Scaling Normal After Fraxel?
I am a 20 year old Indian male who had a Fraxel treatment done 3 days ago, to resolve a minor acne scar and additional scarrings due to shaving and tweezing out beard hair. But 24 hours after undergoing the Fraxel treatment, my skin looks darker and very scaly. The heavily treated area looks much worse. My lone acne scar looks deeper—much like an ice pick scar. Is this to be expected? Also from your personal experience, does age play a factor in the efficacy of fraxel?
Fraxel treatment is a fractionated deep resurfacing treatment
Fraxel restore dose cause "bronzing"
