Fraxel laser for acne scars on Asian skin nyc new york ny

Fraxel restore laser is an excellent treatment for acne scars in Asian skin.  Usually 5 to 6 treatments are necessary, depending on the scarring.  The laser settings are lower than those used in lighter complexions and the treatments are further apart to prevent postinflammatory hyperpigmentation.
You should start using a fading cream and tretinoin cream before your treatments to prevent PIH and have 2 treatments 6 weeks apart.  If you are developing any PIH, delay your next treatment by a few months, and then resume treatment.  You must avoid sun exposure and any tanning.
