I Have Asked This Before and It's Been Ignored...how Are Depressed Post Laser Scars Treated?

Please don't deviate the question. No need for settings, laser. A worthless "surgeon" who took a gamble on my face for money. I'm left with damage how do I treat it? Are laser scars (non ablative) scars deeper than acne scars?

Hi Dahila,

Sorry to hear about your bad non-ablative laser experience.  Ironically the best treatment for the scars caused by the non-ablative laser is either non-ablative Fraxel restore or ablative Fraxel repair.  We could best answer your question with photos or examination.  Non-ablative laser scars may be more shallow or deeper than acne scars depending on the depth of each.  It will likely take a series of treatments for optimal results.  Good luck and be well.
