Can a c02 laser reduce the size of a scar and when can I get it done?

CO2 for scars
CO2 laser treatment is an excellent option for improving the appearance of some scars, but not all scars are the same. Your scar should be seen by an expert in lasers to evaluate if it is appropriate for CO2 or may be better treated with something like a pulsed-dye laser (PDL) or even a surgical revision.
