Diagnosis

Atrophic, box-car, mixed acne scars in Asian skin type

Treatment

Fraxel 1550, 5 treatments. In darker skin types, more laser treatments are needed on the side of safety. Darker skin patients have higher chances of post laser skin colour changes, and hence lower settings are needed. The flip side is that an extra one or two Fraxel treatments are needed- all on the side of safety.
