Which treatment would be best for me to remove acne scars and decrease pore size?
I would recommend a fully ablative CO2 laser procedure. In comparison, a fractional CO2 laser would provide improvement but not to the level a "full" CO2 laser treatment would provide. The downtime would be 7-9 days with some lingering redness to pinkness for 2-3 months. The results would be significant but some of the acne scarring would persist.
I hope this helps.
