Acne scar improvement with fractional CO2
I cannot attest to the authenticity of the photos that you have provided, simply because they are not mind. What I can tell you is that we do see very significant improvement in acne scarring after treating with fractional CO2. In general, you have to undergo 3-5 treatments to achieve results similar to those seen in your photos. It is my personal opinion that fractional CO2 is currently our best tool to treat acne scarring.
