Fraxel procedure after a scalp micropigmentation treatment? (photos)

I'm not completely happy with my SMP in my donor scar. I heard that a Fraxel procedure can improve the scar. My scars are indented. Please help with some advice?!?!

Fraxel on scalp?

By the look of your picture I think your scalp would benefit from microneedling treatments.  Light based treatments such as Fraxel or in our case Sublative Fractional RF, though they technically don't interfere with hair follicles could be more risky on the scalp near dark hair.  I would recommend microneedling.
Typically scar therapy requires five to six treatments spaced three to four weeks apart.  There would be slight redness and swelling similar to a bad surnburn for a few days afterwards.  Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) would be a great option as well.
Hope this helps.  Good luck.
