Profractional Healing Time
It seems that you had a decent depth treatment. When treating acne scars, you have to be patient as you will need more than 1 treatment. Pro-fractional treats a "fraction" of the skin for expedited healing & recovery.
Peeling, flaking and redness are all normal side effects 5 days post treatment. If dark patches do not begin to lighten up in a few days, I would see your doctor or provider who performed your treatment. Also, post-care topicals are important for healing such as Cutegenix. I hope this helps.
