Acne scars and dark skin
Fraxel is a great laser for acne scars in type I and II skin. If you have a tendency to hyper pigment and have a darker complexion then I would definitely agree with the EMatrix treatment. It does only have the same risk of hyper pigmentation and successfully treats acne scars. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with these lasers for the best cosmetic result.
