It is important to have the new Fraxel which goes deeper.

In brief: Yes for some cases

The fractional laser is fda approved for the treatment of acne scars.
You should realize that nothing will actually remove scars . The fractional laser, like other scar treatments, might reduce the visiblity of scars and blend them into the surrounding skin. You should see a dermatologist of facial plastic surgeon to discuss the best options for you.

In brief: Yes

The fraxel re:pair can be effective, but in creating improvement, not correction, of acne scars.
