Does Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment Really Work? How Many Session Should I Need to Undergo? (photo)

I had a Fractional CO2 Laser treatment last June. It cleared most of the pimples. But I still I have some boxcar and ice pick pimple marks. Would further fractional CO2 Laser treatments clear these? Thanks.

Each subsequent Fractional CO2 laser will build upon prior treatment in inducing more collagen remodeling and scar revision. I typically will recommend most of my patients seeking Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing for scar revision to consider at least two treatment sessions 6 months apart with or without subcision.
