C02 laser for scarring

Thanks for your question. The C02 fractional laser promotes the production of collagen and elastin by stimulating the deeper layers of your skin while treating outer layers of scar tissue with varying levels of laser energy. This process reduces your skin damage and leads to a plump, enviable complexion. There are other ways to reduce the appearance of scars such as laser skin resurfacing or injectable fillers. These options can work well in conjunction with your laser treatment. Best,  Dr. Katz
