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.

Yes co2 helps scars dramatically if they are the right type of scars. I suggest you see an expert for an evaluation.  Best, Dr. Emer.
