Does skin laser resurfacing eliminate hyperpigmentation and acne scars. Which is better Fraxel or Fractional co2 laser?

Doctor Answers 2

Hyperpigmentation On Face -- Clear + Brilliant/Viva, Microneelding/PRP, Skin lightening, Aerolase

If you have hyperpigmentation and acne scarring, fractional co2 is not the best option. it is better to do a combination of nonablative lasers like fraxel or viva and combine this with skin lightening, microneedling, and aerolase.  I suggest a formal consultation.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Nonablative works well for acne scars.
