Does Fraxel Work on Mild Burn Scars Under Eyes?

I have scars (only mild or 1st degree) from burns under the eyes, and was wondering, if Fraxel Repair or Restore would help remove the scars? If so, would the pigmentation be the same afterwards to the surrounding skin? Also, are there any other lasers or treatments that would help? If so what improvements can I expect realistically? Thanks.

Unfortunately, no one can guarantee you that a problem with your pigmentation won’t occur. Some mildly thick red scars do improve with Fraxel re:store. The re:pair would have more risk of exacerbating the scar theoretically. Fraxel re:store helps improve mature white scars slightly but doesn’t make them go away.
