What Should I Know About Hypopigmentation Before a CO2 Laser Correction for Acne Scarring?
My dermatologist/surgeon wants to use CO2 laser for acne scarring. The scarring is not too extensive or extremely severe, but needs to be improved. I'm concerned mostly about hypopigmentation. I am a white male, 37, with fair to somewhat darker skin tone. I think my dermatologist called it a 2 out of 5? What should I know about the possible permanent change in skin color?
