Will my scars on my abdomen get better with continuous fraxel laser treatment?

Diminishing results from multiple Fraxel treatments
Fraxel laser resurfacing can produce better results with more numbers of treatments
If there is no improvement in the scar, after about three treatments, I don't persist with more Fraxel treatment.
If moles have been treated though, and not acne scars, please be careful to make sure you don't confuse color of a mole with scarring. It is not wise to continue to treat a mole that may have different colors with Fraxel until that mole is deemed to be benign by a board certified dermatologist or other specialist. Moles that change color or have irregular coloration or irregular borders need biopsies to ensure they haven't turned to a bad mole. Patients shouldn't moles treated by laser unless they are examined carefully.
Fraxel for scars
Fraxel is the ideal laser for treating acne scars. The 1550 setting is used to treat these scars. The problem with these types of hypo pigmented scars is that they are extremely difficult to treat since they require multiple laser sessions and can be quite costly. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with lasers and scars.
