Should I see at least some improvement from CO2 and Erbium at two months?

About two months ago I had a face and neck CO2 laser treatment with additional Erbium laser around my mouth for fine lines and also acne scarring. I was red and swollen for about two weeks, then I looked completely normal. At this point there is no improvement. Six weeks after the procedure I saw my PS who acknowledged the lack of results but said to wait, which I'm willing to do. But it seems like I should see at least a small amount of improvement at this point, or am I expecting too much?

I suggest you see an expert, you may need a more agressive approach for improvement.  Best, Dr. Emer.
