Fraxel for Acne Scars
The Fraxel Repair is an ablative Co2 laser, which means the laser will cause a wound. There is generally redness, oozing, swelling and scabbing immediately post Fraxel Co2. In my office I let my patients know that they can have major downtime for 5-10 days post Fraxel Repair.
Fraxel Restore is an excellent choice for acne scars but you will need multiple treatments for best results. The Restore also has many energy levels, it may be possible to do stronger Restore treatments.
It is important to consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist with plenty of experience using the Fraxel Restore and Repair to see which treatments is most appropriate for you scars and skin type.

I Like a combination treatment for acne scars that includes Subcision and Fraxel Repair Laser.
