My doctor wants to spot treat with the traditional CO2 laser for acne scars. I have a total of 10 or so boxcar and icepicks scars on my cheeks, temples, and forehead. I have been reading reviews and a lot of things are making me nervous. Permanent hyperpigmentation, hypopigmenation, new scars, etc. I understand there are always risks but it seems like a lot of people come out unhappy. Should i avoid the traditional CO2 laser and ask for Fraxel Repair? I have pale white skin and blue eyes.
