Affirm CO2 for acne scarring

+1

The Affirm CO2 from Cynosure, Inc. provides micro ablative treatment with a wide-range of settings for “incredible flexibility.” This device does everything from superficial wrinkle treatments to deep CO2 laser resurfacing – but with minimal recovery time ranging from one to five days.
Acne scarring, pigmentary disorders, skin texture, surgical scars and traumatic scars
can also be improved with this next-generation micro ablative technology.

For acne scarring, depending on scar depth, four to six sessions may be necessary,
again at two to three week intervals. Patients can expect anywhere from 60% to 80% clearance. There is probably two days of downtime with redness and swelling. However, the results are likely permanent.
