Diagnosis

Rolling and atrophic acne scars on background skin type 4

Treatment

Fraxel laser, 5 treatments. Last photo shows results 1 month post laser. Once again in darker skin patients with acne scarring the treatment parameters MUST be conservative or post laser skin changes can occur. Acne scar revision in darker skin patients is best carried out with FRACTIONAL laser resurfacing - Fraxel or Erbium. In some cases I do use CO2 laser, but do not overlap. Dark skin patients can be treated with laser, but treatment is always conservative.
