Fractional Laser for Acne Scars and Uneven Skin Texture

+1
The Fractional Erbium Laser has been used effectively to treat acne scars and improve skin texture. The end result depends on the type of acne scars. Ice pick type scars should be cut out and sutured prior to laser resurfacing. More shallow acne scars can be treated with the laser without surgery. Fractional laser therapy of uneven skin texture is also effective. If you have large pores, these may get smaller but can also increase in size after treatment. A thorough skin evaluation by your surgeon is crucial prior to treatment
