I recently had my third fraxel treatment, the doctor used a needle to break up the acne scar tissue on the deep scars after the treatment. Is this normal? has anyone ever experienced this before? Does it work? Also how long does it take Hyper pigmentation to fade?

You are just full of questions. I have not used this technique, but please keep us informed on how it works on you. Hyperpigmentation fades differently in individual patients related to skin type and aggresiveness of the Fraxel treatment. Your treating physician should be able to answer this best for you.
