Any co2 resurfacing will help these types of scars.  It is not the machine that gives the results, it is who is using the machine.  I suggest finding a dermatologist of plastic surgeon with a lot of experience in using lasers for scars.  Your type of scars may require more than just laser however, such as minor punch removals and/or fillers.  You will want to find someone who does these types of treatments daily.  We would gladly see you in our office anytime.  I wish you the best, Dr. Emer.
