Hi, I had Smartxide CO2 laser treatment done on my cheeks for acne scars over 3 months ago and my cheeks are just covered in streak LINES that are INDENTED and thousands of small holes. It looks like thousand of horizontal paper cuts and holes all over my cheeks. Will these ever go away? Its been 3months with no improvement! My doctor seems confident that these will go away, but I am not. He said my asian skin may take longer to heal.What can I do? I am so depressed.Help please! PLEASE! Thanks.
