Fraxel in Asian patients
Fraxel is a great laser for treating acne scars. Asian skin is the some of the most delicate skin and you need a different laser to treat some of those deeper scars. Please consult a board certified laser about your different options including fillers and the eMatrix laser. Please consult a dermatologist who is an expert in Asian skin for the best cosmetic results.
Since you have taken a break and you are still experiencing scarring, it may be best to consult your physician and discuss your options. Generally, the average person only needs about 5 treatments to rid acne scars but it is quite possible that you may need more treatments at lower frequency to remove all scarring. Your physician will create a customized plan with you based on your skin type and condition to determine how aggressive each Fraxel treatment should be. There can always be a slight risk for PIH when using any kind of electromagnetic device, but with lower frequency Fraxel is it highly unlikely.
