Laser treatments vary depending on the operator and the settigs used for the treatment.  Therefore, your treatment results may be better with another Erbium treatment.  Fractionaly CO2 laser resurfacing is a great option for someone who has not been happy with previous laser results.  It allows for resurfacing as well as skin tightening.

Fractional Erbium laser for scar treatment

I suggest at least 5 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart for Fractional erbium laser for scar treatments!

It takes at least 6 months after the last treatment to see the final results!

Good luck!
