Acne after Fraxel


Acne can develop after Fraxel or other laser treatments.  Clogging of the pores and inflammation can occur.  You should consult a dermatologist for treatment which may include a salicylic acid cleanser, tretinoin cream and benzoyl peroxide gel.

We use CO2 lasr and have not seen this problem. CO2 will tighten pore size. Most laser doctors have aestheticians ask them
