I believe that fully ablative CO2 laser would be the best procedure for me. I have extremely shallow scarring and would like to just have one treatment done, I dont want to pay for numerous treatments with other lasers. Look for an experienced Laser surgeon that has performed this procedure for many many years. Also, any references to any doctors that may be able to help me out would be greatly appreciated as well.

Dr. Shan Baker for Midwest CO2 laser resurfacing
Dr. Shan Baker at University of Michigan would be a great person for you to see. He has many years of experience and has published extensively about traditional CO2 laser resurfacing. He's also taught many, many fellows (myself included) how to use the CO2 laser safely. I hope this is helpful.
