Can eMatrix work on scars that are a few years old?

Improving Acne Scars, Old and New
It sounds like eMatrix could certainly be a step in the right direction for you, however please do not let negative feedback deter you from Fraxel! When performed by an experienced physician, Fraxel is perfectly safe and can do wonders for acne scarring. While both eMatrix and Fraxel aim to resurface the skin, they do so in different ways. Speaking very generally, Fraxel is often a better option for Caucasian skin types, while eMatrix is often better for other ethnicities, due to the decreased risk of hyperpigmentation. Both treatments will require multiple sessions.
Because you mentioned a variety of scarring types, you may also need to look into other modalities of treatment, such as TCA cross, microneedling, or Bellafill filler, to get the most significant overall improvement. Consult with a board certified Dermatologist to discuss your treatment options. Best of luck!
