I'm considering the Pearl Fractional to help with moderate scarring on my cheeks. I've heard lots of great things about this new procedure; but how does it work? In pictures, I've seen the laser blasting a pattern of holes into the skin, and I understand how that corrects the scarring in those spots; but what about the untouched areas in between the holes on the skin? How do those untouched areas get fixed?
How Does Pearl Fractional Help Acne Scars?

The fractional laser seems to stimulate new collagen which seems to fill in the scars and rejuvenate the skin through collagenesis, and tightening of the skin.
