Which Treatment for Acne Scars
For example, with your Fraxel and Fraxel CO2, the depth of the treatment matters. If you only received topical numbing cream and did not have any bleeding (or very light bleeding) after the procedure, then your resurfacing was very superficial. A deep resurfacing (up to 1000 microns) is more often required for deeper scars.
Another option is combining Subcision with Fractional laser resurfacing on the same day. We find that this combination can provide additional benefits.

The best way to treat these scars with your skin type is the eMatrix laser. It is a radiofrequency laser which is color blind for all skin types. Please consult an expert in treating acne scars for the best results. Best, Dr. Green
