Treatments for Acne Scars and Enlarged Pores

 
Hi and thank you for your question! I agree with your dermatologist recommendation that Fraxel can be a good treatment to address both the acne scarring and enlarged pores. Please keep in mind that Fraxel is the brand name of a Fractional CO2 laser and there are several other models and brands of fractional CO2 laser available that meet the clearance requirements of FDA/Health Canada and you can look for providers that offer other variants of this laser as well. I hope it helps and good luck!
