Can Fraxel cause already light scars to lighten further or hypopigment?

Scar treatment and Fraxel Laser
It is possible that the Fraxel can make your scars lighter or more red depending on your skin type. You didn't say what your skin type is or post a photo. I would post a photo first for more input on your question. Redness from lasers is more typical. Hypopigmentation can be from the nature of the laser used and your skin type. For the best results consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Fraxel laser treatments.
