Acne scar revision using Mixto Laser resurfacing

Fractional CO2 lasers including Mixto can be quite helpful for acne scarring. However, at least two treatments, preferably preceded by subcision may be needed to achieve a satisfactory results. For deep ice-pick scarring, it would be advisable to undergo punch excisions 6 weeks prior to laser resurfacing.
