In brief: Fraxel for acne scar

Now i recommend fraxel laser resurfacing for acne scarring.
This laser treats only a portion of the skin at one time, but has significantly less 'downtime' than more ablative and traditional laser resurfacing or dermabrasion; there is minimal recovery, no painful recuperation, less chance for infection, scarring, and hypopigmentation, and very good patient satisfaction.
