I had a fractional laser treatment to treat some shallow

Customer Question

I had a fractional laser treatment to treat some shallow acne scars 3 months ago, but the treatment did very little to create a smooth transition from the undamaged skin to the scarred skin (the perimeter of the scar has not shown any improvement). I want to have a dermabrasion procedure to correct the failed laser treatment (i have had excellent success with dermabrasion in the past). My skin appears to be fully healed - can i have the dermabrasion done at this time?
