Fractional CO2 Laser for Shallow Acne Scars

+1

The Fractional CO2 laser works by sending tiny columns of CO2 laser energy through the skin's surface; this process stimulates the production of healthy collagen to fill in pitted scars. Most patients see an average of 70% improvement after Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, which can result in a dramatic change in the skin's appearance.  For patients with shallow acne scars, laser resurfacing may produce an even greater improvement in the appearance of the skin.
