Shall I Go for Erbium Yag Again Even After Having 3 Sessions Which Gave Me Half Results

Secondary Laser treatment

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!
