People are trying to influence him out of lasers because any type of laser is gonna do very little for his scarring. IMO, lasers are for superficial scarring, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, minor wrinkles and minor imperfections. They are not for deep rolling scars because you are gonna see very little result for your money.
Fraxel Re:pair! You are lucky in that you have few scars, you are unlucky that they are concentrated on your cheek area, the most difficult area to treat. You will need multiple Re:pairs at a very high setting to achieve results. DO NOT be sold Fraxel Re:store, it would be like using a 22 on an elephant. I am the guy who has had 5 Re:pairs at maximum setting and only the first one was difficult. You can listen to people who have never done it or you can listen to someone with real experience. You will NOT be satisfied after the first Re:pair, but if you quit there then you have quit on yourself. I am probably older than any other person here, and I have many people ask how come I seem to be getting younger all the time. I only come on here to fight some of the negative people who influence people not to do a treatment that can actually help them. Write off Re:pair if you want to, it is your skin, but Re:Pair is the ONLY thing that has ever helped me, and I have gone through Dermabrasion, Regular CO2, Rolling and Copper Peptides.
Have you had Fractionalized Ablative CO2 or not? You take the exception and make it the rule just because you say so. If you are against lasers then fine don't do it. Just go around putting lemon juice or the worthless treatment rolling. With the exception of those who should not do lasers, the only exception to success is people who are treated at too low a level, and those who expect "MIRACLE" results after one treatment. Listen up folks, the key is treatment at a high level and multiple treatments!!
