Fraxel Laser For Acne Scars On Face: Can It Heal Scars & Is It Painful?

A well known beauty product contributed to a bunch of acne scars on my face. Seriously, I never squeeze and scratch. All of my pimples are gone, but I have a lot of scars left on my cheeks! What can I do to fix this?

Depending on which setting the technician has the laser on, Fraxel can be very painful. For scars they have to turn the energy up a lot, so it probably will hurt but it may be worth it in the end. I'm not sure if it will benefit your type of skin you should ask your doctors. Fraxel is just like a famous expensive face cream, some use it and love it, some hate it, some don't have any thing to say to it. So it all come down to the type of skin you have. If you have oily skin, and come to use a cream was excellent for dry skin, ít will give your skin a bad break out. And it is not really the cream's fault. It's you that have no knowlege of you own skin. So is the laser, if your skin is sensitive and you like to use higher setting, it is certainly will make you skin worst then what its already is with more sensitivity, redness, itchyness, slow time to heal...ect. So it is important to find a Dermatologist really experience with this fraxel laser. Educate yourself with how different the setting will work with different layer of skin would not hurt either.If you decided to do it , my advise is go easy on the energy level, don't go to deep that your skin have to work hard to recover all the damage skin. But do more session instead!
