What does the fraxel laser do to current acne ?

Okay so I plan on getting cradle laser for acne scars that I have. I've been this treatment before but the only difference is now I have current acne. What will the laser do to them, pop it or will it remove it ??

Fraxel will treat the acne scars but has little effect on current acne.  If you still have acne you should have it treated and under control first before you treat the scars.  Best, Dr. Green
