Fraxel is a great laser (1550) for acne scarring. You will need several treatments at least one month apart for the best results. Plasma laser is no longer on the market and I much prefer Fraxel for this type of scarring. The most important thing is to find a board certified dermatologist with experience in Fraxel laser.
Thank you for your question.It is essential to seek the opinion of a board certified physician to find the most effective skin treatment that is specific to your individual skin type. Fraxel laser is a common technique that is producing beneficial results for patients with a variety of skin types.
Acne scars can be difficult to eradicate but they can be improved. Depending on the degree of scarring, you will likely need multiple treatments. I like to use Fraxel Dual for acne scarring but it depends on how deep the scars are and what your expectations are. Please consult with a board certified specialist who can assist you with achieving the results you seek.
Acne Scar Treatment with multiple technologies
Acne scars are difficult to treat but can be improved.
In my office I like to treat your type of acne scars with Vbeam, Fraxel and
Plasma. Vbeam will improve the redness in your skin. Fraxel will resurface your
skin to improve tone and texture and stimulate collagen production to improve
the depressed scarring. IPL does improve redness and can stimulate collagen
however Vbeam and Fraxel are stronger technologies and will yield greater
improvement in a faster time frame. Plasma will expedite healing after laser
treatments and also stimulate collagen production. The combination of the 3
techniques will give you the most improvement. It is important to remember that
best results come after multiple sessions and your skin continues to improve
for up to 6 months after your last session. Consult with a Board Certified
Dermatologist to see if these options are best for you.
