I just had Pixel Laser treatment done a while ago. Prior to this, a year ago I had a series of skin needling (Dermaroller) done already...it improved my acne scars (depressed ones due to cystic acne) and softened (flattened) keloidal/raised scars on my face. I wanted more improvement, so I had Pixel done with a 7x7. Will my acne scars improve more?
Will Pixel Laser Help Improve Acne Scars?

Pixel laser great for acne scars
The fractionated technology of the Pixel lasers is considered state of the art for acne scarring. There are 2 wavelengths (laser types) that Pixel uses- a non-ablative setting of 2940nm, and an ablative setting using CO2 technology (10,600nm). I generally prefer the CO2 technology for most skin types as it is more powerful.
Generally, a series of treatments (2-4) is required for maximum benefits, though you should see results with only one. Some improvement may continue for 4-6 months after each treatment.
