Fraxel Repair for the Whole Face?

I would like to get Fraxel repair for my scars only. The doctor is recommending to have it done on my entire face. Is there a reason for this?

Fraxel repair for scars

They are most likely recommending this approach to avoid color or texture differences between treated and untreated skin.  If you have darker skin, the chances of these issues arising is greater.  Take care, Dr. Groff
