Fraxel vs Fully ablative laser

Don't Do Spot Treatments With Lasers
I agree with Dr. Lane above. You can do either and they are different. I use both ablative CO2 and fractional CO2 settings with the Fraxel re:pair. The laser is capable of both although most only utilize the fractional component. I do use the more traditional ablative method to "round off" existing scars, although I also find the fractional CO2 laser (higher settings) to be quite effective for acne scarring. As noted, multiple treatments will offer best results.

Fraxel re:pair laser is a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser that
vaporizes microscopic columns of tissue deep within the skin. It is one of the
more aggressive resurfacing options and I find results highly satisfactory within
1-2 treatment sessions. I would recommend treating the full face rather than
sections to avoid demarcation lines post healing. You want the texture and tone
of your skin to be uniform. I think you’ll be pleased with the outcome.
