Fraxel laser resurfacing for acne scars

Every patient needs to be individually evaluated to determine what is the best treatment for the facial skin and how to obtain the best result in improving their acne scars. Most patients are able to tolerate six treatments, done once every month. Some patients need more and others less. The scars never disappear 100%. There usually is continued improvement as the skin produces more collagen in the dermis underneath the scars, for at least six months after the laser.
