Fraxel 1550 or profractional laser for acne scars? Rolling scars and box car scars.

A single combination treatment for rolling acne scars works better than Fraxel 1550 or Sciton Profractional Laser alone.
A single combination treatment of rolling acne scars with tumescent anesthesia, extensive subcision (using a new surgical instrument) and Fraxel Repair Laser works better than Fraxel 1550 or Sciton Profractional Lasers alone.
Never about the laser, always about the method for acne scars
Its always matching the best METHOD for acne scar revision. Most patients will have multiple scar types including box car, ice pick, atrophic, hypertrophic, rolling acne scars etc... treatments will depend on the scar type, skin type and downtime. See video for a full explanation of acne scar revision conducted at a specialist level. All the very best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
Combination of lasers
V-Beam laser for redness and Fraxel or eMatrix for these scars combined with PRP and microneedling would be the best treatment. I agree that a combination approach works best. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with expertise with lasers. Best, Dr. Green

The Best Approach Would Be a Combination Approach--Acne Scars Treatment with lasers, microneedling/prp and fillers
A combination approach is needed for best results including: surgery, subcision, fillers like Bellafill, Sculptra or Radiesse for broad "boxcar" or "rolling" scars, microneedling/prp and lasers. I recommend getting a formal consultation with an acne scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
Which laser for acne scars?
Of the 2 lasers you pick, profractional is ablative and probably better. I agree with treating reds with another laser. I would also research the Infini for acne scars. There would be less downtime and better results in my opinion.
