Good results can be obtained with Fraxel, Active FX, Syneron/Candela CORE, ExcelO2, and many others.  The provider doing the treatments is key.

Fraxel Dual for Deep Acne Scars

The results of using Fraxel Dual for deep acne scars are quite ideal. Here's why. Fraxel Dual uses 2 wavelengths:

1. 1550nm

2. 1927nm

The 1550nm wavelength is able to reach deep skin layers to  normalize the collagen density of the scar tissue so that it looks more like the unaffected skin in the surrounding areas. The 1927nm wavelength treats more superficial issues like tone and texture to refine the results. Downtime and complications are relatively minimal

Take a look at this video case study of an actual patient where Fraxel Dual was used on her acne scars.
