Hello I just had my 6th fraxel restore. The first 5 were for moderate-severe acne scarring and it didn't provide much improvement. The 6th restore was for hyperpigmentation which the FRAXEL caused. I just got home from the clinic and there is a LONG, thin, slightly raised scar under my lip towards my chin. THIS WAS CAUSED BY FRAXEL JUST THEN. Is there anything I can do??? Please help doctors. I came in to help acne scarring and now have more scars and moderate brown hyperpigmentation please help

Scarring From Fraxel
I would agree with Dr. Shelton that scarring will not occur immediately after any laser treatment. I would certainly bring this to the attention of your physician. If you are developing postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, I woudl also suggest discussing other options for treatment than continued Fraxel treatments.
