What is better for acne scars Fraxel 1550 OR Dual Fraxel 1550/1927.
If you don’t have a pigment problem, the 1550 nm. The 1927 nm wavelength was a wonderful addition and is used for pigment. The Fraxel Dual laser is a beautifully engineered laser because it has both wavelengths but the doctor can combine them in many ways. The Dual can be used with all 1550 nm, half 1550 and half 1927 or any combination needed. So you can have a Fraxel Dual treatment and use only the 1550 nm. If you have acne scars and pigment, then a combination might be good but you won’t get as much result on the scars. If your acne scars are many and deep, then consider the fractionated CO2 laser.
Hope this helps, Dr. B I
