Fraxel Dual would be good for Hispanic Skin with acne scars and enlarged pores


I feel that the Fraxel Dual is your best option for improving the acne scars and enlarged pores. I can't be done until you are off Accutane for at least 6 months. The Fraxel treatment will also help your acne. Instead of Accutane, you could consider Levulan with Blu U activation. 2 or 3 or these can greatly improve your acne without the side effects or risks associated with Accutane.
